Yep, I am calculating again. (as If I am not calculating constantly, paces, miles, race times...on and on and on and on, and it's sad really because my math skills SUCK!)
I plan on running 15 more miles this week
a 1/2 marathon on sunday 13.1
So by monday next week I will be at=
120 miles left to run in 20 days
Even if I ran 30 miles a week...I will only be at 90 miles.
(I am calculating that I will do a long run on Saturday of 10 miles for the rest of the year)
I could sneak in 2-3 miles somewhere on a weekend afternoon, I mean it's not about speed right, just getting the miles in. That could add in 5 or so extra miles a week?
MY HEAD WILL EXPLODE, if I try to calculate this further...plus I will just bore you all....
My whole point is that I am going to try to do this...
My back is feeling better! I have been stretching A LOT! And doing some strengthening exercise, and runing slow. So far, so good!
My weekend was pretty uneventful...
Friday night work Xmas party. Drank too much beer but all in all a good time
Saturday just running around doing errands
It's back to COLD weather here this week. I need to get back in to my cold running state of mind. Which needs to include a good pair of running tights this year. Last year I wore real tights under my running pants and always was sopping wet because there was no moisture wicking. This year I am runing longer distances and need to splurge on some tights.
My Xmas wish list this year is:
- New Pair of running shoes
- Pair of running tights
- and...last but not least!!! Entrance fee for the Austin marathon! (I had contemplated doing some other marathons in some nearby cities, but with kids, and work...I just need to do a local one so it doesn't cost much extra for gas, hotel, food, etc...
That's about all I have for today.
Hope you all have a great week!
