This is a tough week. Check your shoes and make sure they aren't too worn. Consider getting some racing shoes for the fall and use them for tempo runs.

Monday: Warm up; 6-mile run (400 Mile: 5 miles/300 Mile: 3 miles); 6x150 yards relaxed strideouts on grass, jogging back to the start after each, no rest between; cool down.

Tuesday: 1-mile warm up, 20-min. tempo run, 1-mile cool down. To de- termine your tempo run pace, add a half-minute to your present mile pace for a 5K. For example: if you currently run 18:50 minutes for a 5K, that's 6:05 pace. Add 30 seconds and your tempo run pace is 6:35-per-mile. Recalculate your pace as your fitness improves, perhaps once a month.

Wednesday: Warm up; 6-mile run (400 Mile: 5 miles/300 Mile: 3 miles); 6x150 yards relaxed strideouts on grass, jogging back to the start after each, no rest between; cool down.

Thursday: 1-mile warm up, 7 hill repeats (run 200 yds uphill, turn, jog downhill to start. Repeat six more times, no rests); 1-mile easy cool down.

Friday: Warm up; 6-mile run (400 Mile: 5 miles/300 Mile: 3 miles); 6x150 yards relaxed strideouts on grass, jogging back to the start after each, no rest between; cool down.

Saturday: Easy 5-mile run or a walk.
Sunday: Easy 9.5-mile run on grass or dirt with friends (400 Mile: 8.5

miles/300 Mile: 7.5 miles).
