NYC Training Week # 6

75 miles for the week.

The longest days was only 12 miles but the previous 3 weeks I have done 3 plus 20 mile runs so a less then 20 mile run is good. Well this by far was the hardest week of training I have had. I don't mean in terms of distance but in heat. It was 90+ for 6 days and the humidity was about the same. I don't mind heat but the humidity is the worst to run in. I compare running in humidity to running with a blanket on. Humidity does not allow your body to sweat properly and cool down so you stay hot and sweat more.

The first six weeks so far have been good. Last summer I did some speed work and this summer I have not done any. I think speed work is good but I the racing I am doing is taking the place of my speed work. I use the shorter distance races as my speed work.

Enjoy your week.
