7/20/2014 - Sunday Run 2
6 more miles at 8:52/mile. Ran a second time at noon. In July. In Texas… because:
A. I was behind my husband in weekly mileage and that dog won’t hunt. Competition makes for healthy marriage, right?
B. I needed an hour of quiet. I haven’t been alone in days. Even in the bathroom, “people” (you know who you are) are asking me questions and sticking little sticky fingers under the door.
C. I am tired of getting pounded unto the pavement 3 days a week at run group. I would really like to not be last one of these days. Aim high, right?
There are 4 sub 3-hour girls in the group and it’s no secret what they are doing. The run a freak-ton of miles. I bought the book Racing Weight and the message I got from it is run as much volume as your body, job and marriage can handle. I’m not about to go crazy and abandon my family, but I could definitely be doing more.
