Passed 1K Today
Actually yesterday I ended on 999 exactly. So today's 12 mile slow run put me well over the 1K mark for the year. And it wasn't easy. I'm in Wichita, KS for an architectural presentation, and it was 74 degrees, with 90% humidity. That's a Summer Workout Index (SWI) of 164. Sweaty.
I know for some of you, 1,000 miles at this point in the year is a lot. But I've actually lightened up quite a bit on the volume of miles, and will probably end up with less than last year. You'll recall a few years ago I had back-to-back 3,000 mile years. Why? Good question. Just to prove to myself I could do I suppose. But I think 3,000 was a little too much for me. Now I'm running only 5 days per week, and will probably end up with less than 2,500 - which is fine with me since my legs feel so much fresher later in the year for Fall races.
So anyway, not a major accomplishment, other than checking another thousand miles on the body's odometer. And to this point, I'm still running strong, with no complaints. Hope your training is going well too!
... be great today!
