Tue - Rest
Wed - Rest
Thurs - 3 mile run .50 mile walk
Fri - Rest
Sat - 4 mile run
Sun - 8 mile run (finished in 1:13:35, not bad....if I can only keep this pace up for 5.1 more miles)

On the schedule for this week:
Mon - Rest
Tue - 3 mile run
Wed - Rest
Thurs - 3 mile run
Fri - 2 mile WALK
Sat - Rest
Sun - 13.1 and ROCK IT!!!!
