7:25 avg. mile pace, heart rate avg. 140

17.16 miles (after the previous day of stuffing myself, I thought this run was going to be horrible, I was wrong)
very hilly course (one hill was a steady incline for well over a mile)
7:25 avg. mile pace, heart rate avg. 146
15 minute Ab workout

56.65 miles total for the week

This week I toned it down a bit on the time in the gym.  I am probably going to drop down to 3 days a week normally in the gym and do more full body workouts.  As the mileage increases, it becomes more and more difficult to get to the gym and bring enough intensity.  Also, I gave cycling a break as well, as I spent a lot of time with the family over the holidays.  With the holidays in full swing, my eating hasn't been like it usually is, but I am getting back on track now that Christmas is over.
