So I continued my swing of high mileage and low mileage weeks, up and down.  I hoped to be more in the 100-120 range this week, despite the traveling I was doing.  But I did pretty well on all the supplementary work.  And I guess it's not sooo bad to have major down weeks after what is, really, higher mileage than I've ever done--it ensures recovery.  And after the last 10 weeks building up, I should now be set up to keep the mileage high consistently.
