I turned in my grades last week and have the summer to focus on research and running. It seems to me that it is time to give the old run-commute another shot. Two weeks ago I had a solid 50 mile week and, while I only put in about 30 miles last week, I think I'm ready to try something a little more ambitious. So here's the plan. It's 8.5 miles from my house to my office. Tomorrow, I have a meeting at 10 so my plan is to leave here around 7 or 7:30. That should put me at work and cleaned up well before 10. Then, back home by 5 for a 17 mile day. The only down side is that it is supposed to rain tomorrow morning. I've run in the rain plenty of times and my laptop is currently at school so I think it should be okay.
If that goes well, I might try the same process again on Tuesday (Denise is in town so I'm working on Tuesday also). I haven't had time for a decent long run in the past couple weeks, but back to back 17 milers should be a good way of kicking off the summer!
