Good for the week: I did some cross training, and ran 5 different times. Walked 2 different times. Completed all scheduled classes, even adding a new class. Tried out the Stair stepper machine that I haven't used in a long time, did 1/2 mile on that. Over 50 floors of climbing up stairs. Made me super tired.
Bad for the week: The pool never saw me. My bike collected dust this week. Boo. Other than that I would say I did AWESOME.
Things I learned this week: I can push harder than ever when racing. I achieved 28:11 in a 5K I did on Saturday, that was after running 2.5 miles to warm up. This race where I achieved this time, I ran in 32:00 last year, same course, same types of temps. So I have improved almost 4 minutes with my running a 5K in 1 year's time. Just think what I can do with another year of training. All this when I'm training for a marathon and my times usually slow down.

Elliptical 14.46 miles
Running 162.81 miles
Swam 13,967.30 + yards (7.94 miles)
