Run 500 Miles in 2009: Mar. 22-28

“Running is 90 percent mental, the rest is physical.”

Week’s Summary: I don’t feel like I need it, but I’m going to install a rest week here anyway, because the last thing I need is a forced rest due to injury. Cutting back about 25% of the load, I should be fresh, well-rested and continue feeling great next week.
