I would have to say that my past couple weeks of training have been the epitome of Murphy's Law. The entire week leading up to the July 4th weekend, I was doing awesome! I finished a 45-minute run, which is about 3 miles. I felt strong. Then, July 4th weekend came around and things took a turn. Click the title and read on.
