There are days that running feels more like the picture above. Today was one of those struggle days. Although as I moved into the final mile, something clicked – it didn’t feel any better but my stride improved and my pace went down. Most of the rest of the run my legs felt like lead.
My goal mileage wise for May is 108. This would tie last May, but I am currently at 68 miles. 40 miles by next Friday would be a stretch at best. However, if I stick to an alternate plan, I can at least come up with 30 to 32 miles, which would take me to 100. I would be happy with that.
This week I was able to complete 22 miles – 16 running and 6 walking, and all of those miles since Thursday. Maybe that’s why I was a little sluggish. That about wraps up this week’s update. Pressing On!
