Let the mileage begin!
Ahhh, isn’t he cute?? As promised, this blog will be much happier and positive than the last 🙂
I’m starting to ramp up my mileage now. So far, so good. My mileage weeks have stepped up a little quickly:
Week 1: 48 (with a few hours of skiing)
Week 2: 65
Week 3 (this week): 80
I’m just starting to feel “strong” from the mileage, which is a fun feeling. Today’s workout was 11 miles with 5 at 6:27 pace. It went well — although I did have one weak moment where I let myself stop (WHY do I do that?!?). The rest of the week is pretty mileage-loaded:
Thursday: 4 w/ Vakava skiing
Saturday: 6 easy, recovery
Sunday: 20 w/ 9 at Marathon Pace (ouch…)
Uff-da! But, I have a good feeling about this week. I think the only challenge will be finding the time to do all of this on top of work, commute, keeping up the house for showings, etc., etc. 🙂
So darn CUTE!
The puppy is nice too 😉
We'll see how much of this I can do with you to whip me into shape!
