25 miles a week

You all will be happy to hear I did not get sick!  I really hope I didn’t just jinx things…(2 hours after I wrote this statement guess what happened... I just had to say it!!!) You know what's annoying, when you husband loses 8 pounds without even trying.  Thats stupid.

My goal for the month of December was to average 25 miles per week, well I averaged 20.  I wanted to slowly up my weekly mileage to the point of 50 miles per week in order to prepare myself for a marathon.  For some reason though I found it hard getting that extra 5 miles in!  It is probably all down to my conditioning. It isn’t until the past 2ish weeks that I have felt comfortable running 3 miles, and the past week where 4 miles felt okay.  I am either really naive or optimistic because I always think things will be easy.  Run 25 miles a week, easy.  Train for a marathon, easy.  Have my husband build us a kitchen table when he hasn’t even built a birdhouse, easy. ;) (to be fair, he is killing the table!! It looks awesome, it should be done soon)

Now that I have come to terms with this being harder than I think, I have given myself the gift of time.  I really thought that in a few months I would go from running a mile to running 50 miles a week! Hahahahahaha, just re-reading that statement has me laughing.  Man, am I overconfident!  So, my goal for the month of December is to run 25 miles per week.  I have a much better base to accomplish my goal this month then I did last month.  And just a FYI for everyone, when I ended the week on Saturday I was at 24.7 miles. :)  Lets try this again.

 

 I really wanted to get 6 miles in on Saturday and knew I wouldn't get it done on my own, so I called in the big guns.... Momma.
