Sunday: Long day, Run an easy 50 minutes on trails.
Monday: Warm up, 40 minutes modest pace, on grass, finish with four 150 yard stride outs.
Tuesday: Wwarm up, find a good 200 meter hill, run relaxed for 20 minutes and then run up the hill four times, hard, pumping arms and keeping your stride short, jog down easy, run a good pace for 20 minutes, cooldown.
Wednesday: Moderate day, 45-50 minutes continuous running on trails.
Thursday: Warm up, find a track and run 20 minutes on the outside lanes at a mile pace 30 seconds above what you can average for 5K pace right now. So, if your current 5K pace is 19 minutes, that means that you should run 20 minutes at 7 minute per mile pace. Run no faster, then jog an easy 20 minutes cooldown.
Friday: 45 minutes on roads, finish with four 150-meter stride outs, focusing on running fast, but not hurting oneself. Saturday: Run an easy 30 minutes, or take a nice bike ride or walk with family.

I know what you both mean. I have been getting ready for winter cross country and I feel like all I ever do it run and the diet that I have to eat sucks as well. I would kill for some ice cream right now!

Summer training will give some edge on your opponent. I don't mind training for 4 hours of my time during summer. Besides it will benefit me in the long run. As much as possible I want to run and run until my last breathe. :D
