Week 14, 2010 training totals


I had a wonderful time running this week.  My body is hungry for more miles, and it is a little frustrating at times to control the urge.  However, I know that at this new faster pace I really need to build my mileage just like any other time.  I did change my Sunday long run just a bit and ran 15 miles instead of the planned 10.  This was partially because I WANTED TO RUN LONG, and partially because I will be on vacation at the Grand Canyon  next weekend and will not really have time to run, as I dedicate time to the family.

Not exactly sure how to move around my training schedule this coming weekend, but will probably run long on Friday morning prior to getting on the plane. (Hmm, long flight.  Shower or no shower.  Muhahahaw!)  Then will run long next week on Wednesday after returning Tuesday evening.  How I feel will really dictate how I train these two weeks, but most people know how anal I am about my training schedule.  (This past year I have only missed one, I repeat ONE, training day.  And it was only a 4 miler.)

    Nice numbers. I always do my long run on a Friday if I am leaving town w/ the family. Then you can sneak in shorter ones while away without too much disruption to the trip.

    Grand Canyon sounds awesome! One day you’ll have to run the rim to rim to rim there – we’ll get a group together and do it (it’s not an organized race but many groups do it. Google it :). Have a blast!!!!

    Nice numbers man! I always get jealous during Tri season when I see running numbers like 38 mpw and I am only doing 15-20. Almost can’t wait until winter to start busting out the 40+ mpw’s!!

    Adam, Just saw your comment about growing up in East Palestine. I know right where that is! … funny how all us TriState area folks end up in the South? Were you lucky enough to grow up a Stillers fan too?

    Good running, Adam!!!!

    I canNOT believe you only missed one run last year!!!!! That’s impressive! I just decided to do another yoga challenge – just 30 days… and four days into it, I changed my mind and am not doing it, haha! (I’m yet to confess this on my blog)

    And I loooove that feeling where you just want to run long… It’s a beautiful one 🙂
