And Another Week….

Okay. Things are getting serious here. This week I’ll make it to 20 miles. As long as I don’t wimp out and make some excuse for not doing my “long” run:

  • Monday: Rest
  • Tuesday: 3 miles
  • Wednesday: Rest
  • Thursday: 5 miles
  • Friday: 3 miles
  • Saturday: Rest
  • Sunday: 9 miles (WTF? Next thing you know I’ll have to worry about a double digit run)
  • Total planned: 20 miles

Now – I’ve also got to come clean. I didn’t make my long (yeah – seven miles is long these days) run last week. Instead of 17 miles, I only got 10 in. So, this week will be one of those no no’s – doubling mileage. As a result, I’m going to take it especially easy on pace. There will be some lots of jogging and even some walking this week. The last thing I want to do is to break before I’ve even started.


  1. Good adjustment! Really important not to injure yourself now. I did 10 this past weekend and have been feeling the drain ever since... so it's tough to do those distance regardless.

  2. sticking with the plan to not break is a good idea!

  3. Doubling mileage when taking it easy isn't a big no-no. Maybe for someone just new to this gig, but you are a pro and you'll do just fine!! Loving your commitment!!! :)

  4. 20 miles is feeling legit! Very happy for you.

  5. good luck! you've done all this before - you can do it again.

    but it is rather humbling to look and see "oh, i ran 9 whole miles this week". so impressed with myself... :)

  6. Double digit runs - gotta love it Glenn!!! Good to see some flow coming back.

    BTW, fall pics will be arriving soon ;-)

  7. 20 miles is VERY respectable! Congrats. Soon I will see you on Holy Jim : ))

  8. Slow and steady is the way to go. High mileage will come with time. Just keep going.

  9. i only run 12-15 miles per week. 20 miles seems like a lot to me!
