It's Been a Good Week

24.4 Miles so far this week - and I'm not done yet. I feel really strong and pleased with my workouts this month. A couple of PB's and a mini streak of 6 days is what I got going. Isn't it funny how running goes in cycles? I've been running since HS and still it amazes me how you have just good weeks/months and then just horrible runs, weeks, and complete months.

Currently I'm on pace to run over 100 miles this month! I can't remember the last time I did that - maybe 1990? Actually I'm surprised on how good my legs feel. Right now they are a little sluggish, but nothing I can't deal with. Do I anticipate running 100+ miles this month? No, but being this far into the month and that being within reach is very nice to know. Maybe in a few months I'll break that 100 mile barrier but I'm not going to kill myself this month trying to get there. My goal this month is 70 miles so I should reach that if I continue on doing what I'm doing.

Keep Steppin'

100 miles is great! That is really awesome that you are hitting the mileage.

I too think that it is funny how running goes in peaks and valleys. I'm in a valley for sure right now. I'm trying to balance getting in my mileage while letting myself heal. Hopefully it was just a run and not en entire week/month!
