Doing this for 5 weeks to build leg strength before a summer marathon program.
11:30 - machines and core at the gym.
3:30 - 20k in 1:37:40 w/ 10k hills

7:30pm - 12k at the track.
+ 6 x 100 barefoot on the grass
Legs heavy. Warmed up and stretched, but still heavy. The hills are taking their toll.

2:00 - 15k in 1:23:40 @ 5:35
Legs really heavy at first.
2:00 - 20k in 1:35:32 w/ 10k hills
21:21 @ 4:16
Planned to do the hills in 4:30 up and 4:10-15 down due to calf worries (sensitive to that since I tore a calf muscle last oct.). Also it was a muggy day. But run last 5k strong. The calf was fine and I surprised myself by coming back at 4:16/k pace. A good week!
