I’m a little behind in updating the blog for week 9 but I figure late is better than never.
The summer is dragging on and at this point it just keeps getting hotter. (Notice a pattern here.) In fact, I finally gave in and did my first long run on the treadmill this week. It came down to this question, do I kill myself with a heat index of 116 or a slow death by boardom on the treadmill. I chose the treadmill.
Here is the daily damage report….
Sunday: rest day
Monday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 12 miles on the treadmill at the Y
Wednesday: rest day
Thursday: 11 miles
Friday: 5 miles
Saturday: 20 miles – It was 65 degrees when I started at 4 am. It was worth getting up early. Was still slow but my time was 15 minutes faster that two weeks ago. There is still hope for the Fall.
Total for the week: 53 miles
