My goal: run 65 miles this week. There, I said it! Phew…I wasn’t sure I had the guts to actually type it. But there it is, out for all blogdom (A.K.A the four people who read this blog plus my mom) to read.
When I compare myself to other runners I know that it can get a lot more hardcore than 65 mpw. Hell, some runners put in consistent 100-mile training weeks and I can only assume those brave souls are
1. Very fast
2. Very dedicated
3. Have a job that allows them to log lots of road time and
4. Have very understanding families/significant others/pets/or houseplants.
My dedication to running isn’t so much a problem. Right now it’s the sore leg muscles and insomnia that are cause for concern. The sore legs are result of tripping like an idiot on a gravel road on Monday’s run. The insomnia is all the fault of my neighbor, her new boyfriend and the creaky floorboards under her bed! Grrrrr!
