This was a solid week on the mileage and climbing front. I decided to not taper for the race Sunday, but just push out some easy paced runs through most of the week. I came away from the race feeling like I'm starting to get into decent shape again. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to motivate myself to get out on the roads much for Dublin, but I'll keep doing a weekly track workout and then hope that I find a day or two where a hard LT session on asphalt sounds like something I want to do.
