Training Recap: Weeks 10-16 of Escape from Alcatraz

I haven't been able to do as much as I'd like with my writing. I used to write weekly training recaps to help me reflect on my progress and goals. My writing has taken a bit of a backseat to my work and teaching (which includes lots of grading). So, in the time I've been …
