For instance I have put in 60 mile weeks for the past three weeks without a hint of consequence.
I have opted to reduce the training volume this week and utilize it as a micro recovery period.  My intentions are to permit my legs a bit of recovery in order to absorb and adapt to the recent training stresses so I can put in another successful, big volume block of training before Race Prep …
