REPORT: Marathon- Conditioning

Surprisingly I broke 80 miles this week without feeling worn out. The pace was tempered for most of the runs to develop muscle conditioning through volume rather than intensity. I am going to let the miles land where they do while feeling comfortable with the time exerted. Concentrated efforts will be primarily on three to four workouts each week, alternating weekly.
