This workout went very well.  I ran the hills of Schuring and some hills on side streets nearby.  I was supposed to do a race between 10k and 15k today.  Since, I  couldn't find one, I tried my best to race at a pace similar to that of a race.
60 minute upper body workout
20.41 miles
7:07 pace, heart rate avg. 148
Great run today.  I could have easily maintained this pace for a full marathon.  I had to hold back quite a bit, because I wanted to go faster.  I love running a good 20 miles; there's nothing I enjoy more.  This was a good indicator of where I am right now in my training.  I am definitely well on my way to a sub 3 hour Marathon.

Weekly total=70.41 miles
