60 miles a week and more

Reached Sixty. Some might be afraid of this volume, for me it is a good sign - I'm entering a good quality work. To hit my Sixty having had 1 day off, ought to make about 10 miles per day. All details of my running work here.
3 days I made workouts with 10+ miles.
3 days I divided my work, therefore made it easier:
8 + 2.50 mi
3 + 5.0 mi
3 + 7.0 mi.
I do consider it as pretty ordinary work, the only "hard" running was 8 miles I did at 7:45 pace - relatively "hard" running for 1+ hour . There are guys from my sidebar who make it at 6:45 and call it Easy.
Next task to make 70 this week. This is tough, I know what it feels like.
Working on it.

Thank you Steve Jobs!
Non running life:
It's been more than 2 month since iPhone was released in the States. Yes I read prerelease info, info about 60 bugs they found after release, at least dozen "full" reviews. Thanks for recent Price cut - 399 bucks now, this is sweet. And say Bye to 4Gb version, good!
Here's a famous Steve's "open Letter". Let's read
"...I am sure that we are making the correct decision to lower the price of the 8GB iPhone from $599 to $399, and that now is the right time to do it. iPhone is a breakthrough product, and we have the chance to 'go for it' this holiday season. iPhone is so far ahead of the competition, and now it will be affordable by even more customers".
Bravo Steve!
Yes I read a lot about How to crack god damn AT&T defense - finally I'm from the other side of the Earth, it has to be much more harder to activate such device here. We have Russian-Turkish-Kazakh mobile providers. Will try my best to crack it, at least I will use it as 399 bucks 8Gb flash player. To crack iPhone for me is a real challenge, whether I can do it on the level of software or hardware or both.

Here's another Steve, MS CEO jerk and ignorant Steve Balmer laughs at iPhone. Personally LOVE most of the comments people made to the video.
Laugh sucker, laugh...

Back to running - I work on 70 miles this week - 10 miles tonight.

Hi Rus,

Good training. I'm sure it will pay off in Shanghai.

Well just after I signed up for a half-marathon in Korea in Nov I pulled my back and haven't been running for 10 days. But I'll start up again this weekend so there is hope.

You know how hi-tech I am, not... Let me know when this i-phone thingamajig drops another $200 and maybe I'll get one.

Have no idea what the heck were you talking about in latter part, but the miles and speed look good to me:)
