Sweet 60!

So I did it. My first 60+ mile week. I just looked back over my last 4 yrs of logs and I thought I had done this once before, but apparently not. Even though the NYC Marathon is not for another 50 days, the high mileage for me gives me a nice boost of confidence. The ~23m we ran today started off with 9m in the Van Cortland hills and the other 14 along the West Side Highway and the George Washington Bridge. Miles 18-20 were done at about a 7:35 clip, which was a pleasant surprise considering we ran hills earlier. I felt pretty decent after the run today considering that I'd felt fatigued this week. I may run another few miles tomorrow with my wife, but it'll have to be REALLY easy.
