What's a difference in a day? A lot

It dawns on me as I get to the end of July that the volume of miles just isn't there this year. Going to have to do something about that. I had 11 miles scheduled and added another for 12 on a Thursday night. Fun times in marathon training.

But this year has been easier on me. For the most part, I've taken training down to a more laid back approach, though 55 mile a week peak is not bad mileage at all.

I'm now at 186 miles, just a long run away from hitting 200 for the month. Last year, I hit more than 200 miles a month five times, doing April, then June to September. Man, I was hitting it hard, and it paid off with a fantastic fall marathon.

This year, I got up to 196 miles in March, but have yet to edge past 200. My knee, which has been bothering me for a few months, is on the road to recovery, and I'm raring to get some strong miles back in me. I won't go for speed quite yet, but that 200, seems like a good enough reason to do my long run on Saturday, the last day of the month, and a day that's forecast to be perfect for summer running (cool). Sunday, it'll just be another month, and who'd want to waste those miles on August?

I'd be tempted to do the same! The air felt GREAT this morning... should be good for tomorrow morning too. Have a good one!

The air is feeling better, the humidity is dying. Some decent runs will be happening soon.
