Running Log: Weeks 19-25

Yeah, that’s right, weeks 19 through 25. When I started writing this running log, I had exactly 26 weeks to get ready for the Army Ten Miler. Time has flown by, and this time I wasn’t nearly as disciplined in training as I was last year. The training this time around has been pretty pathetic. I’ve had moments this past week where I thought I’d just give my bib to a friend to run, but after three good runs this past week, I’m just going to suck it up and run. It’s really going to suck, and I’ll want to quit at the 2 mile mark, the five mile mark, and every mile until I’m done, but it should be an interesting mental and physical challenge. I’m really going to be relying on a rare spike in adrenalin from the excitement of running with 26,000 other people around DC. A couple more runs during the week, and then the big race on Sunday. Wish me luck!

Running Log: Week 14-15

This must be the slump in my training routine and this has turned more into a week in review rather than running log I intended it to be. I didn’t even run 1 mile last week, and only 2 miles this week. To my defense I have been busy at work and traveling all over the place on the weekends. Camping and white water rafting last weekend, drove almost the furthest you can go while staying in Virginia (to Grundy, VA) this weekend, and next weekend, I’ll be headed down to Orange, VA for the day to jump out of a plane with my sister. More pictures from that later this week. Panoramic ones. Hope you’re not tired of them yet… 😉
