This post reminds me quite a bit of my running and by that I mean -- Behind!! I can't help it, but that's how I feel. It's been six weeks since I started trying to run more than 15 miles a week and I am just not seeing the time progressions in my races like I used to or had hoped to. Although, I am not training harder than normal, I am definitely tired than in the past training cycles with all this work mixed in. I guess I am still trying to cope with being older and being slower, and just when I thought I had the ability to get faster too, after my anemia was fixed a few years ago, arrggghhh!!!
Tues: 4.25 (8:46/mile - attempted long run gone bad, legs were sluggish)
Thurs:17.39 (8:39/mile - went out for 8 miles after work and weather was so perfect, forgot to come back - long run)
Sat: 9.92 (9:05/mile - quads sore from Thursday)
Sun: 4.74 (warm-up and cooldown for race) and 5K race (7:25/mile)
Total: 39.43 miles
