A Return to Double Digits

February 24, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

For the first time since the marathon, and for the first time since late October as a training run, I hit double digits today with 10.1 miles. For the most part, everything felt good. It was a bit cold at first, but by mid-way any feeling of cold went away. I hit 25.5 miles for the week – my third straight week of 20-plus miles.

Today also brought me to only two miles away from passing last year’s February total with five days remaining, but my January miles were much less. Even though I’ve ran fewer miles so far this year than I had last year at this time, I’ve been more consistent with creeping my mileage up leading up to the next race. This 10-mile run also surpasses my longest run from last year leading up to the same race. I’m pretty much on track with some training plans I’ve seen for a half marathon, although I’d like to be running a little bit more. Right now, I’m just happy to be running as much as I am.
