This week marks a new record in weekly miles, 27! Old record was 25. I actually did two long runs this week -- did 11 Monday to make up for a miserable day Saturday, and 10 today. Of course, my short runs were very short, I did 2 miles of hill repeats on Tuesday, normally I do three, and Thursday was an easy four miles on the treadmill.
The old record was 25. Here's the graph:
Today's run was wonderful. I ran the bike trail but took a different route. I started at the Y and ran five miles out, all the way to the cow pasture. I was off today and I have a feeling this was one of the last times I'll be running in the sunlight for awhile. It went well, nothing hurt and I'm not really sore now. Just tired.
Then I went to Columbus. Fleet Feet put a note up on Facebook that there was a new model of my shoe out, the Asics Kayano, so they were closing the one I have out for wicked cheap. Of course when I got there they were already out of my size! But I'll poke around online and try to order a couple pairs, I'm sure it's out there.
I plucked an Asics MIT jacket off the clearance rack. It's really nice. And I got a bunch of different hydration nutrition products to try out. I used Gu Chomps for the first time Monday. They weren't gross and I got through my run without dying, so I guess they were effective? Hard to tell. I'm kind of afraid of the gel packs.
Here's a photo of the loot.
There won't be any running this weekend :( Tomorrow is going to be insane, I have to go to a workshop in Cincinnati then head up to Cleveland. Sunday I'm driving up to Maine for a week of R&R. Hopefully there will be some nice runs up there!
Got a few more posts to get up soon! For now, time to pack.
