August 19th to December 8th -- Recap

My training was not very consistent over this time period. There were some good weeks and others where I ran very little. In the middle of October, I was getting to be pretty fit. However, I caught a nasty illness and had a difficult time getting going again after being really sick for about 2 weeks. Toward the end of November and beginning of December, I started training again everyday and went right into some aerobic workouts. At the begginning of December, I started the training plan below which I intend to follow for about 4 to 8 weeks. So far I have been good about getting the running done, but haven't completed any of the ancillary training.

July 29th to August 18th

During this three week stretch I started mixing in additional workouts, but did get a pretty bad cold, so there was a 4 day stretch where I took it pretty easy. If I had to guess my mileage for each week was probably 55, 85, and 65.
