PM: 11 miles in just under 75 minutes on the treadmill

1 brisk mile up, then 10 miles at 9MPH.

Michigan cool down (I seem to not do proper cool downs, or any at times, since I have moved and time has been tight).

I apparently forgot to do my blog entries for the last three days. That has happened a bit too much lately.

PM: 21 miles on the treadmill in 2:33

Thinking I might scrap the ultra and run Glass City the third week in April. The travel time would work a lot better and I would be able to sleep about a mile from the start line. And 26.2 miles is a good deal less than 33.5. This would be the first week of a 16-week buildup and I already have two 20 milers on the books.
