Adam Culp Endurance Training Running training

Renewed drive to run more

After being kind of lazy and caught up in work since January I found a reason to ramp up my running a bit.

My training has been sporadic and really only 1 or 2 miles each time I go running.  (I have been averaging 7 to 10 miles per week, and feel pretty good about that.)

Lately my wife started running in an effort to get into great shape for a trip to Germany.  She wants to visit with an old college classmate and wants to look her best.  She has gone completely crazy and is doing 3 miles, then 5 miles, then 7 miles, then 8 miles, and finally is now getting up to 9 mile runs on a treadmill at least 4 times per week.  This climb was in a very short time period, and made me wonder why I wasn’t doing that.  If she could do it, so could I.

I also notice that a judo buddy of mine is posting some serious miles of his own in Facebook as he prepares for an ultra marathon.  I have heard him talk to others in the club about his runs, and I am gaining interest by the day.

I have decided I would like to start adding a little distance to my workouts.  I will do a couple of 5 mile runs at a little slower pace than I normally would on the advice of my judo buddy.
