Sometimes that number just shows up

Monday, July 14, 2014

It was a pretty good run day already. Went out to a bike path I've known since grade school with my wife and did 9.3 miles. Great path. All asphalt lots of turns and minor ups and downs kept it interesting and moving quick. Hours later, yeah the gears start turning once again thinking I have more left in the tank. Yup, going to have to put a smaller run up later. Laced up the shoes for the second time, and off I went. I had second thoughts after only a couple of blocks as my knees felt tender, but as fast as that feeling appeared it disappeared as well. Came back, calculated the distance out...........................
3.7 for a total of 13. That's the mileage of my long run the final Sunday of each month (I DIG THAT # !) Interesting on how that all works out. That second run showed some good resiliency, and I didn't just drudge through it either at a few seconds over an 8 minute mile pace. And it was only about a week ago that I took a bad step and twisted my foot too (thought that was going to be all bad.) So I'm looking at how the mileage is creeping up more and more, and I'm shocked and proud. I never thought I would be running 30, 35, or 40 miles a week. I'm just at the point where I get out there and run whatever I feel like (except on Sunday where the idea is usually the planned number of the month.) Still got 4 months to go before the race and over 5 to complete the year of running. HOPE I DON'T GET BORED!
