Ready to Run

I am ready to be back.

Having not raced nor run more than 30 miles in a week since the beginning of July, I am ready to get back to it.

Injuries suck. But I am not interested in dealing with this one for any longer. I have felt good for a couple of weeks, but have erred on the side of caution and stuck to the plan.

Today I get to start things up again.

Today I get to regain some focus and work towards some goals.

At this point my goals are relatively modest: stay healthy for the next 2 months and run a half-marathon PR in early December.

If setting a PR seems like a less than modest goal, consider that my PR came after 4 weeks of training and that I have run for 638 consecutive days since then. As long as I can stay healthy I believe I can PR.

From there, we will see how my ankle feels.

I need to average about 35 miles per week for the rest of the year to hit 1800 miles for the year. I certainly believe I can do that while staying healthy.

One way or another, I am excited to try!


Good luck!

Glad you're feeling better!
