This has been a good and challenging week for running. With each run, I feel just a little bit stronger. One run this week was run in completely new territory, while I waited for James to get off of work. I knew the territory, but had never run there. As running places go, it was functional – part of a shopping center parking lot and an access road to several businesses. Still, a run is a run. Today was a challenge because my work schedule was different – so I only have 15 miles for the week, but I am planning on getting a run in tomorrow afternoon, so in seven days, I will get in twenty miles and it will average out by the end of the month. The runs have been slow, but with each run, I feel a little stronger – some days I feel wiped out – probably from working 40+ hours and then trying to run 3+ hours a week. I am looking forward to this next week. Tomorrow marks the halfway point and if I hit 40 miles, I’m halfway to my goal of 80+ miles for the month. That would make me very happy. That’s about it for today – Pressing On!
