If the miles behind me could be put into words before you, you would feel my efforts, my struggles, my desires. Most of all you would see my joy. Watch me from afar run the trails and hills and miles upon miles and you will see ...

Big Week

Last week was my second biggest mileage week ever.  Unlike last August when I did 95 miles over only three runs - 41, 35, and 19 - I spread it out a bit more and did shorter ones.  I never usually post my weeks but thought this one was cool as it was more well-rounded than others in the past, and I felt great!

Mon - run 4:05, 31 mi
Tues - run :30, 4 mi barefoot on beach
Wed - bike to work :35, 18km
            bike home :35, 18km
Thurs - run to work 1:22, 10.5 mi
              run home 1:17, 10.5 mi
Fri - run :35, 4 mi barefoot on beach
         bike to work :35, 18km
Sat - run home from work 1:17, 10.5 mi
         run to work 1:17, 10.5 mi (tough one)
Sun - bike home :35, 18km

Total:  running - 10:15, 81mi
             biking - 2:20, 72km

I feel surprisingly well after a "big" mileage week (for me).  This one coming up is hoping to hit 95 - 100 miles if all goes well.  Then three weeks of taper and all should be well (in theory).
