Training Summary Week of 5/6

Another “solid” week of training complete. It took me longer than I expected to recover from the Frederick Half Marathon , but I guess that can be expected as I pushed my body pretty hard and really got after it on the downhills. I think this is a good thing as my body will be more ready for the pounding it will take this weekend at the Pocono Marathon.
