It was a busy week and not only have I neglected keeping up with bloops, I have 10 days of photos to dump too.
I'm on a #runstreak right now. It started after being frightened off the injury train by using the elliptical on New Year's Eve. I'm on day 18. It's been manageable, but I might call it quits after this week. I want my long runs and speed work to be tough, but not ugly. I got a FitBit for Christmas and it has been an eye opener in how many steps/miles I walk at work every day.
Last Sunday, I finally started to feel in the training groove with a 12 miler that went rather well.
And sour cream chicken enchiladas (Friday):
Boston might be less cruel? I dunno...I'll report back in April.
I've been toying with the idea of running a trail marathon at the end of February. I mean, I'm scheduled to run 22 that weekend anyway and what's another 4.2 miles? Runner logic.... Besides, I PR'd last time I ran a marathon 8 weeks prior to another one. Again, runner logic.... And it's only $50 and 45 minutes from my house...
And I'm still debating the double 12 days post-Boston (Mitten Challenge). Might be really, really terrible. But it also might be really, really great. And if last year proved anything, I don't want to wonder what if in the instances of pushing myself to the limits. If I fail, I fail.
Lastly, I leave you with a little sumpin', sumpin' that talked to my heart.
