It's Sunday, which means another week of training is over - and today is September 1st, which means there's a whole new month of training ahead! First, let's look back.
GMM Half Marathon Week 8 Training Schedule:
How it actually went:
Total weekly mileage: 20.20
What's funny (well, not really) is that so many people I know run 20 miles in a day. But to me, 20 miles in a week is a big deal, especially because I've never done it before! So I'm very pleased with it.
Looking ahead to September, even bigger numbers are headed my way. My current schedule has me running 90 miles in September - and my coach is actually changing it tonight to add more mileage (changing a cutback week since I just had a slacker week at Disney). I have never run more than 70 miles in a month, so the idea of 90 kinda makes me feel...... I don't know, actually. Not scared. Excited? Proud? Well, maybe I should save the pride till I actually do it, but still.
Considering that a little over a year ago, I could hardly run a mile, I'm feeling pretty darn good right now!
