I keep a written training log and while adding up my total miles last night for the previous week I was very surprised to find that I had had my highest mileage week yet (18 miles)since I strarted training in Novemeber. I also passed the 100 miles logged point. It was a nice little boost as I still haven’t been feeling “on my game” since the whole holidays/flu=training disaster. I think I was so surprised because I am so fixated on the long run and not making it past 5.3 as of yet when I should be at 7.
Yesterday I got a nice 4 miles outdoors in. It was on the slow side because there is still an awful lit of snow and slush around my place. I actually ran on the road for a bit just to find a clear path. The Main street route is too stinky and had too many stop lights I decided, so I went back to my 37th Ave bike path.
This week is full of promise-things should be back to normal around here except for the ol’ man being away in Montreal with baby boy #3- everyone is back at school finally, childcare is open at the rec centre and I’ve got daycare Fridsy so I can do the long run which if all goes according to plan (and really, when does it ever?!) will be 7 miles.
Big plans for the week- I will try swimming for a cross training session.
