Wednesday – Rest (out of town)
Thursday – 3 mile run, reffed one hockey game
Friday – 3 mile run, reffed one hockey game
Saturday – 3 mile run, reffed one hockey game
Sunday – Ran 6.4 miles
Wound being about 15.5 miles running and 6 hours of skating. Yesterday morning I thought about running Chicago. I haven’t run more than 15 miles in a week, not have I run more than 6 miles, but I figured I have 8 weeks. Then….I ran the 6.4 miles and it was possibly the hardest 6.4 miles ever. Granted it was my fourth day of running after three days running and reffing, but still.
And again, because I’m me (i.e. stupid), I plan on running 8.5 this Sunday and then seeing. If so, I’ll add 2-3 miles each Sunday and just never step back or taper. I really shouldn’t but I kinda just can’t not.
I have one more hockey game next Monday and reffing will be slower in September before the season starts in October. Maybe I’ll be rested. Probably not. I haven’t had anything but dead legs since 2009. I’m getting old. I need one of those lifts that take you up and down the stairs.
