Last week I ran 33 miles. This is the highest millage week that I have ever had. The one word that I would use to describe myself after last week is STRONG. I might not be where I want in terms of weight or speed but right now I feel strong. It is a pretty good feeling.
I plan on increasing my distance but I probably will not have another 30 mile week till after my half marathon. My goal miles are 40 a weeks, I will get there one day. For the next four weeks I am going to drop my miles a little and work on speed. This is something that I must do if I want to PR at my next race.

Fast forward to today:
I think I broke my body. Everything hurts and I feel like I can’t finish the easiest of workouts. I’m not injured, just feel like bleh. It might be because I added swimming, spin, and weights to my workouts. Maybe I shouldn’t train for a triathlon at the same time as a marathon. Don’t worry, I am a quick learner.
Since the half is in weeks, I am going to kick it back and just stick with running and a small amount of cross training.
On to the best news yet…… I found running friends!! Yay, we even run at about the same speed. I will probably go out with these girls two to three runs a week. Maybe next week I will talk them into a group picture. I don’t want to scare them off yet.
You also need to check this girl out Running Kellometers, she is doing a raffle to raise money for Open Heart Magic. You can win (I REALLY want to win) this cute outfit. She is an inspiration, what a great way to combine to passions.
Sorry for the lack of pictures.
