Not sure if I am going to make my goal of 15 miles this week. I have been not
really setting weekly mileage goes since I began running 3 months ago,
however, from my log, I have been bouncing around between 9 and 16 -- but more
in the 9s. So I thought, I have run several weeks where I ran over 15 miles
so that should be a doable goal to reach and stick with every week with a long
term goal of getting up to about 25 miles a week. For a number of reasons, I
didn't get a run in on Sunday or Monday, so I started with my first run of the
week on Tuesday, a 4 miler. Yesterday, I got in 3 miles and today another 4.
However, all evening long my legs are starting to feel dead -- like they are
full of lead. Not sure if I'll run tomorrow or not, however, good news is
that I only need 5 miles, which I could get in on Saturday if I take the day
off tomorrow. I am torn whether or not running as short as 2 miles one day
and then 3 miles the next is the same quality as a single 5 mile run. I'll
probaly opt for the latter and run the 5 miles at the local Greenway trail
that I did last Saturday. We'll see.
