So I’m starting a blog; 90% because I want to; and 10% because I got called out about not having one by someone.
…hmmm need to figure out how to add hot links in my text; just as a sidebar….
So relatively speaking; I’m new to running. That’s not completely true; I ran XC and track in high school; but that was several years ago; and I’ve taken lots of time off in-between and only have been back at it for about 6 months now.
I’m not very fast; probably not the “most efficient”; nor the most graceful runner. But I get up and go log 30 miles a week anyway.
Speaking of 30 a week; it’s Tuesday; and I have not put in a single mile this week…. This whole “taper back” before a big race is driving me crazy.
— It’s also probably the reason I’m starting a blog. Too much free time.
Danville half Saturday…and I’m feeling pretty good about it. I’ve put in about as much training as I possibly could have for it while still racing every weekend (this is 6 straight weeks now).
Sundays long run was an easy 11.5 miler that was actually about 10sec/mile faster than my last half marathon race; so definitely seeing the benefit to these long runs.
This past Saturday saw a new all time personal best 5k time of 19:55 (been chasing sub-20 since high school; never could seem to get it then).
Life is good.
