Are we watching the Olympics or a broken TV?
I've been feeling sort of blah about my running since my 50K. The week after I was a bit sore and ran a total of 11 miles for the week. The following week I ran every single day but the first 5 days were all treadmill and I never did more than 5 miles a day. I got to run outside on Saturday with a long run of 7 miles and then Sunday with 6 miles. This past week I was tired, ran 5 days finishing the week with only 20 miles. I managed to pick up my excitement level on the treadmill when the track and field events started on Friday. I gave myself a gold in the treadmill 1500. My nearest competitor was a 70 year old speed walker (wait we were competing in seperate events.) I know my running is no where on par with any of the olympic athletes but watching them makes me run faster. I try to move my legs and arms in the same way they move their legs and arms. It might help. This week I'm on track for at least a solid 30 miles. 30 miles is supposed to be my weekly minimum. Studies show this is what I need to run weekly to keep my nacho and cheesy fry diet under control.
