Taking a workout from our fellow Boston Marathon runner, Michael, we set out to do his 5 x 5K working down to marathon pace. B- already had in mind we would only do three!
I found the Pratts Mill/Austin Loop course in town on USATF that allowed for a w\u and c\d total of 10K, with the full workout we could get 35K, which would be nice.
We settled for three loops . . . 22:22/21:14/20:16 all the while pushing the stroller.
The week wrapped up with 76.5 miles and cooler temperatures.
