IMLP 2014-Week 21 Training Update-The Final Build

My final build week before Lake Placid was a fairly decent one. I took a rest day on Monday since I felt like I needed it. It was very hot and humid early in the week which upped the intensity a bit for my Tuesday night run. The weather later in the week did not …
