50 Mile Week

weekThis last week, I had moved my 20 mile run to Monday, as the weekend had involved an out-of-town amusement park trip.  This put me in an interesting position, as I had 20 miles on the very first day.  With my 30 mile weeks that were on the schedule – it this put me in line for my very first 50 mile week.

Oct 7th – 20 Miles
Oct 9th – 5 Miles
Oct 8th – 9 Miles
Oct 13th – 16 Miles

Amazing!  That absolutely blows my mind!

It is amazing to me, that at the beginning of this training, 10 miles was a loooooong run to me. Now? I did two days with over 15 miles in a week!

Marathon training definitely changes you.


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
