Well yesterday we drove back from Brevard, North Carolina. It was quite a week, I will be over 80 miles after todays long run, and Robert Scribner (one of Houstons College athletes) will be over 100. It was nice to get away from the 100 degree weather, and alot of my runs were pretty impressive. Basically, we woke up at 6 every morning, ran 40 minutes at about 6:30pace (or faster depending on who was leading), laid in the freezing creek to soothe our muscles, then ate breakfast, slept, and ran another 5-8 miles in the afternoon, ate, slept, got up and did it all over. My legs feel fantastic, and body feels so refreshed.
