This represent a return to fitness at Long Distances that I haven't seen in 4yrs!  Injuries be damned, I'm back! Total miles for the day=17.5

Week total miles=58(yesterday's race I just tossed on here since it's big news, not counting those miles for the "week", but the past 7 days are 75 miles!

Notes: Annoyed about missing Friday's run/training.  But I ran so well on Sunday, I think it was worth a rest day.  You need them now and then, escpecially when you need need to go to a job.  The Long run and 5x1mile was great.  This week is going to be a big week!
