1. I registered myself and my dad for the Army 10 Miler last night. I happened to be on the computer late last night and discovered that when they said April 1, they meant 12:01 am. At this point, less than 24 hours later, 23,000+ of the spots are filled. I know I said I’d never do it again, but my dad really wants to run it and the logistics last year were not as bad as I remembered them being the previous time I ran it.
2. I ran 149.8 miles in March. Yes, that is way more miles than I’ve ever previously run in a single month. Yes, I am kicking myself for not running 0.2 more miles so that I hit 150. Now I feel the need to run 150 for the month of April so that I can say I did it (as I really never expect to run that many again.)
3. For various reasons, not the least of which is that this was a fallback week, I haven’t run a huge amount this week. I’ve done one 4.5 mile and one 6.6 mile run. Both were fairly fast for me right now. I REALLY enjoyed not forcing the mileage and having my legs feel good enough to run fast. I’m looking forward to being done with the marathon and being able to focus on running fast and having fun again. Instead of running, I’ve been focusing on drinking and eating too much. I may need detox soon.
