If you've reading my blog, first off, i'm sorry - because this blog is lame. But you will have noticed that i have been having a bad time keeping my running and training on track. I would love to say that now, post marathon, it is a new day, and i can start fresh, and blah blah blah blah. But the truth is, we are still going through a lot of changes over here. Matt is starting his new job, and we are going to have to move this summer. Change is stalking me. But i am proud that over the past few turbulant months, I have managed to keep up with about 20 miles a week. Granted it should be more like 50, but sometimes that is just not in the cards.
So, looking ahead, i can promise you nothing more than a somewhat forwardish motion. My next race on schedule is Ragnar, so at the very least - there will be double run days. I actually enjoy doubling up on runs. I just don't have time usually for an 8-10 mile midweek run unless i wake up at 4am, or stay up past my 10pm bedtime. But, i can usually swing breaking it up into a morning and evening run. I really need to focus on bringing my mileage up this summer, and improving the quality of the miles. It doesn't help that summer is the worst time ever for me for training. The heat, the sun, the pollen - blergh.
Just to prove i am still running, i have started forcing people to run with me as proof - I got to run with Bobbi on Saturday, and my newly-wed friend Eric on Sunday! Eric and i hit the trails down in Palos, where i stubbed my toe so bad i flew face first into a pile of leaves. Now my good toe is also turning black. Totally ready for this trail marathon in August. TOTALLY.
And just to keep this as a running blog, (on a technicality) i ran last night. And i saw a deer. And the deer was eating a cake. I didn't have my phone, but here is a reenactment of the scene.
