Again...weekly recap

Monday:  full body weights and stretching 
Tuesday:  3 miles of interval work on treadmill
Wednesday:  full body weights and stretching
Thursday:  4 miles of 6 minutes running and 2 minutes walking intervals.
Friday:  2 miles of recovery and full body weights and stretching
Saturday:  5 1/2 miles on treadmill.  Planned on 6, couldn't do it any longer.

I've continued with my abs and pushups.  I'm on week 3 now and my abs are killing me today.  On the up side- everything else is doing well.  I'm amazed at how well my piriformis is holding up and the IT band pain is pretty much completely gone.  I've just got to keep up the stretching and rolling and not slack off.  Hopefully by the time the hill training needs to start, I'll be ready to jump right in.  

If you get a second, pop over to Mike's blog and check out his last couple of posts.  There's a good laugh, an inspirational story, and his detailed countdown to his next half marathon.  It's worth checking out!

Hey Jen,
I have a question... What do you mean when you say 2 miles of recovery.. What is recovery?
Thanks
