How is your summer training going? Your favorite workout? What kind of summer mileage do you run? Summer training has been going great! I have become a lot stronger this summer and expect great things through out the season. We have a couple new coaches under our belt now, so they have been trying many different new strategies of training. Thus far my favorite work outs have been when we went up to Payson and ran altitude and hills. Summer running began at the beginning of June and I have ran about 40 to 50 miles a week as well as lifted twice a week.
