So one week from today I should be setting a new half marathon PR in Montreal. I'm soooooo excited but... I'm also nervous.

This was a heavy week for me - it wasn't my biggest mileage week YET. It was going to be, but I got a stomach bug type thing mid week and missed a run and had to cut another one short. But I got in about 43 and I might... might...still go out for a short recovery run today.

I think I'm not going to... my body feels tired and I'd just be doing it for the numbers really, and that seems dumb. I got in my 10+ (closer to 11) miler on Friday and 20 on Saturday.

WOW! First 20 of the cycle and it felt strong. Soooo happy.

It was amazing because I saw the AVETT BROTHERS doing their sound check in the middle of mile 18. I got to run up. Listen for a moment - then in a pause yell I LOVE YOU!!!!

Seth Avett said into the mic, "We love you, too!" I was thrilled to death, blew two handed kisses as I ran off to finish my run.

Ugh. I love them. Seen them 3 times live, couldn't go to this- it was a bit expensive for really mainly just wanting to see THEM alone since it was a festival. But that experience was PRICELESS. :)

So glad I got over whatever was wrong with my stomach to finish the week strong and still over 40mpw.

Now it's a mini-taper before Montreal RnR and then after that another big week, although I might need to cut it back a bit... we'll see how fast I bounce back after a strong half marathon effort. I'm thinking FAST. I don't remember being too overly sore after any of my last half marathons except the super hilly ones. Even after my last half PR, I was ok.... But we'll see.

The most important thing is staying injury free. Good training is a bonus.

    Your mileage is rockin'! And that's sooo awesome that you had a groupie run. Too bad you couldn't have run on stage and sang a few bars with them. Oh and a picture too!
