20.17 out and back from home, around the airport, through the International Center, along I-80 frontage road and back. 2:59:57 8:55 ave pace. I was hoping to be under 9. I think that was the best I could hope for capping off a 100 mile week, 27 days of continuous running and 6th 20 miler. I looked back over the last two years and my 20 milers during the same period were 9:08 to 9:15 pace. I'm taking this as a good sign for a possible PR April 20th. Physically I feel pretty good. I think I can easily keep my mileage above 80 for the next two weeks. Maybe I'll go for 100 again. I have a couple of non running things happening over the next two weeks that could prevent this from happening.

I weighed myself just before I left and again immediately when I got home. 3lb loss. It's all water loss, I take no water on the run. So what do I do when I get home? Guzzle hot coffee!
