Weekly mileage: 11.2 miles

Cumulative mileage: 564.9 miles

Comments: A thunderstorm forced me indoors.  Which meant that rather than starting at 5:20 or 5:30, I had to wait for the gym to open at 6:00.  So I cut my run a little short.  If I can run outside tomorrow, I'll run an extra couple of miles, albeit slowly.

Comments: After yesterday's long run, I had planned to run easy today.  But I felt good, and it was a nice morning, so I got out and ran 9 miles at just under my 10 minute pace.  It was hard, but it felt good!  I'm dedicating this morning's run to Paula Radcliffe, who also finished even though she didn't feel like it.
