Week 7 was a big miss… I ended up taking 2 days off before Tough Mudder, because I didn’t want to have sore feet going into it. But thanks to Tough Mudder it started my 8th week out well. I’m hopefully going to end it well this morning after I do a crazy long run before work. That’ll at least get me into the 40’s for this week. I finally did a track workout the other day…. I did 5 x 1 mile repeats, all were between 6:09 and 6:29 pace. Kinda fun, hadn’t been on a track in a long time.

I’m officially over half-way through Rochester Marathon training. So far I’ve trained 253.35 miles (already almost how much I trained for the Disney Marathon – 261.95 – pretty sad). So Im on track to have trained more miles than I did for Chicago – and that was by far my best Marathon. I’m pretty excited and can’t wait for the Rochester Marathon. It’d be pretty cool to qualify for Boston in my home town.

Here’s some more pics from Tough Mudder:
