Here we are, about to start our last week of summer vacation. Or, my kids are at least. I’ve been crazy busy trying to get back on track with my job, our house, my marathon training, and this blog. All of them seemed to take a backseat to traveling with the family this summer, but now it’s time to pay the piper.
My training this week went better than previous weeks, at least from a hitting my paces standpoint. I did shorten a couple of run and miss one entirely, but I had a successful pace run on Wednesday where I actually had a couple of sub-10 miles.
My 10 miler on Friday also went way better than the 16 miles I did in feels like 105*.
Then I celebrated my birthday. Oops. OK, it was a pretty awesome birthday, but I paid for it on Saturday. Some day I’ll learn that anything other than beer makes me an unhappy camper the next day.
This coming week is a heavy mileage week, if I hit all the miles. It will be my first 50+ mile week for this marathon! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous. It’s been a while since I ran like that… Thankfully, the weather here has been decidedly un-August-like, so running has actually been pleasant most days.
As we wrap up August, it’s also time to get back on track with Tuesdays on the Run. I’ve had a hard time keeping up this summer, but know that I read more than I comment because I suck at commenting from my phone. But, I’m back, the kids start school soon, and life will settle into a schedule again. With that in mind, here’s our upcoming Tuesdays on the Run schedule. This Tuesday, of course, is rate your month, if you are looking for a topic.
|Sep 6||Will your training schedule change for fall? How?|
|Sep 13||Best/Worst of Summer|
|Sep 20||Fall race schedule|

I look forward to catching back up with everything and everyone, especially since I expect the next month of intense training will mean lots of being too tired to do anything but play on my computer.
