A Glimpse of Things to Come?

M- 6.0 miles 48:37 snowmobile trails/RR Tracks w/ Paul, felt good, 10x60m strides after
Tu- 4.0 mi wu w/ Roger on roads, then 7x2:15 hill repeats on snowshoes in Whitaker Woods, did not feel good, but gutted it out, 8 total
W- 6.0 miles behind Wal-Mart w/ Paul 49:37, felt good, surprisingly quick, ballistic exercises after
Th- 4.5 wu w/ Roger, 6x0.8 miles @ Settlers Green, 4:32 4:32 4:26 4:26 4:23 4:26, 0.8 cd Very good workout, this workout seems to be getting quicker without any extra effort
F- 6.0 miles behind Wal-Mart w/ Paul 48:06, a little faster than easy, but not bad
Sa- 5.2 miles @ 5:41 pace (29:31), then up Hurricane Mt. Rd. to the summit of Black Cap (3.0 mi) in 26:41 (8:53 pace, 10% grade). Very happy with this workout. Was hoping for 6's on the roads and 10's on the climb. 3.0 down Black Cap for cooldown
Su- Hurricane Mt. Rd. to Black Cap to Peaked to Cranmore 14.8 miles 2:42:14, 3,000+ ft of elevation gain, tired but good tired.

Totals: 63.5 miles, 9.0 hours. Around 5,000 ft of climbing. That is probably what I would call a perfect week for me. Good amount of quality, decent volume, and all of the little things. I plan on going super easy today, as I'm a little tired form Sa & Su. I'm doing an interview w/ Channel 5 out of Boston tommorow about snowshoe and mountain racing. Should be fun.
