Week 3 - My First "Stepback" Week

Today's Total Calorie Intake:  1975
(Exercise Calories:  637)
Total Net Calories:  1238

The training plan I'm using has "stepback" weeks every third week.  Most weeks, the long run increases by at least a mile, but on stepback weeks the mileage is reduced.  This week's long run will go down to 5 miles...the week after I'm up to 9 miles!

I plan to do my weekly runs on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday this week.  I'm donating blood during my lunch break on Monday, so I'm not going to run on Tuesday.  I'll most likely do an interval or tempo run on Thursday if I do OK on Wednesday...otherwise I'll skip the speedwork this week.
