..Shorter posting for this week, but the main thrust for the summer is getting in solid enjoyable training: steady mileage, some speed work to maintain leg turnover, hill work for strength and long runs for endurance. Just being consistent with the training will pay off big dividends come Fall season. It may not seem that “visible” progress is taking place, but adaptations are ongoing and when you transition to more tempo, peaking over the last three weeks before your goal race – it all kicks in.
