Fitting in the mileage

At one point, I'm going to keep track of how many miles I've run so far this year. Suffice it to say, the past month has been ultra busy and I'm pretty lucky to have been able to fit in running.

Of course, that's silly since I must run. Must. I was just sitting at my computer almost two hours ago mulling the choices between crashing on the couch or going for a short run. 45 minutes later, the better part of my won out and now I'm unwinding with a 3 miler in me.

So far this week, I've run four out of five days, but put in a pretty low 15 miles. Man, in my training peak, I put in a 15 miler on a Wednesday. I guess that's for the summer months.

So ahead, I plan to hit a 13 miler, maybe even a 15 miler, on Sunday. Tomorrow, a light 5 or 6 miles. And if all that goes well, then I'll have hit my target for once. Marathon training begins in two weeks.

You're allowed to have a little off-season. I'm sure you'll be pounding out those crazy miles again in no time.
