Will Summer Ever End?

Hey y’all! I have some spare time tonight so I thought I would stop in.

First off – thanks to all who sent their well wishes and concerns about my hip. I took last week off. It’s a wonder what some time off will do! (Hint hint to all my friends out there nursing nagging injuries).

So I’m back at it this week. Unfortunately the weather here in Sacramento is not cooperating (still in the low to mid 90’s when I leave the office in the evening), so I’ve been on the treadmill this week. I’m hoping the summer will end soon!

On the running front, I’ve been slowly chipping away at getting back into shape. Look for some lengthening out of my runs. I’ll be entering the realm of consistent double digit mileage weeks (as in 10+) this week. I’ve also knocked about a minute per mile off my training pace (which, by the way is still pathetic). I’m hoping another 4 weeks will put me back in the respectable range (in other word, to the point where I won’t be embarrassed to show that x-axis on my graphs). I’ve even put together an actual 26 training week plan that I hope to follow.

But - just in case you’re thinking – no - I haven’t signed up for a certain race that goes from the Stadium to the Sea in the city I was born and raised in! Yet. Maybe. Just maybe……


  1. I'm glad the week of helped your hip. I have also learned that time off can really help with most nagging injuries. I had no idea you were up to double digit runs again- that is fantastic with your crazy schedule.

  2. Come on, Glenn! My mileage is currently lower than yours, and I'm in. =D Training will begin in December...

  3. I'm sorry to hear you are having hip issues but I'm glad some rest did it some good.
