Happy Friday, people!
I can’t believe it’s already the end of January, but I’m not too sad about it because I ended up with 80.7 miles for the month! First time I’ve hit the 80s since last March.
For a while, I didn’t think I would ever get back to monthly mileage like this, but hey, what do you know, smart and slow training really helps.
I had to tell my dad first, as I do with every running feat I encounter, and I think it was first time I had higher monthly mileage than him. I was pretty proud of myself for a while, but then I showed my lack of math skillz and my confidence plummeted
Note to self: 80 – 77.5 = 2.5
(My confidence didn’t actually plummet that much. I’m used to it. Show me numbers and I immediately clam up like a….clam.)
So, to get to 80.7 I decided to run 2 miles this morning. I usually (read: never) run the day after a long run, so this was new to me….. and also shows how vain I am in needing to hit that 80 mile milestone.
I know some people love to do shakeout runs after their long run, but I don’t think I’m going to become one of them. It wasn’t the best run and it wasn’t the worst, but I definitely don’t feel any benefits from it besides feeling a tiny bit less guilty after eating those tater tots at lunch.
Okay, I’m off to go begin enjoying this weekend.
By watching a movie and going to bed early :)
Do you track your mileage everyday?
Do you prefer math & science or english & history?
I think we all know my answer for this one.
Any fun plans for the weekend?!
