After a tough few weeks, today is the beginning of rest week. This week, I have easy 30, 40 and 60-minute runs at an easy level 1/2 pace. Other than a few minor aches and pains, I survived the long runs, fartleks and tempo efforts in good health. I will enjoy this week. Towards the end of the week, I have to test my lactate threshold again. I expect to see improvement but you never know!
