This is the longest stretch I ever went without blogging. Every time I sat down to write a post over the past 2 weeks, I ended up just deleting it. Quasi-training doesn’t lead to the most fascinating posts. Some people can make the mundane sound interesting. I’m not one of them.
Quasi-training is going really well though. For right now, it’s just what I need. I have no interest in racing a marathon this Spring. Running a 50K or a trail marathon? Maybe. But I enjoy being noncommittal at the moment.
I’ve fallen into a pattern with training. 3 weeks of 40-50 miles and then a big drop back week. That’s good enough to maintain my base until I decide to be committal again.
Wk of 2/4: 40 miles with 13 miles long
Wk of 2/11: 43 miles with 17 miles long
Wk of 2/18: 46 miles with 20 miles long (first 20 of 2013!)
Wk of 2/25: 30 miles with 10 miles long
Besides running, we celebrated a very important birthday.
And I laughed till I cried, drank too much, and chatted until 3AM with these ladies.
All is good.
