Training 8-09 - 8-29 (last 3 weeks)

Last 3 weeks training recaps (exciting I know)... weeks of 79, 80, 82.  Last week was supposed to be 90 (as per DD's outline) but I just ran out of time to squeeze another 8 in.  I 'almost' ran an extra 8 when I got home from VT on Sunday, but figured some rest was a bit better for me at this point.  The hectic summer schedule (that I wasn't really anticipating) is coming to an end and is winding down...some longer trail/road races coming up (like the marathon) and some XC possibilities as well.  It's all training that leads up to the snowshoe season anyways right?
