Back in the day ...

I ran up to 75 miles a week. I generally would accomplish this feat by running eleven times a week. Yes, eleven. Twice daily on Monday through Friday and once on Saturday {leaving the Sabbath as my day off, of course}.

But that was back in the day.

From October to today I have ran roughly 40 miles. Not per week ... just 40 miles total.

Oops.

My goal since October has been to run three times in one week.

I ran once in January {not once a week, just once}. I ran twice in February {not twice in one week, just twice total}, three times in March, four in April, etc.

Oops.

But let it be known ... today, June 12, 2010 I went running ... to make my grand total of times running this week ... three!

Wow. I am so glad it didn't take me nine months to meet this goal. Awesome. In the time it takes most women to grow a human, I ... I take to go running three times in one week.

Here's hoping for three plus next week! And maybe, just maybe for the first time I can actually be in shape when I run the half marathon {disclaimer: this is not me saying I am running the half marathon ... I generally don't decide that until the week of ... hence: why I have never ran one while in shape}. :)

So, I guess this post is to basically let you know you can give praise me ... verbal praise is great, monetary and edible reinforcers are even better. Just sayin'. ;)

I have been saying for nearly 11 months that I was going to start walking again on a regular basis (ever since I moved to my new house)... I think I can count on one hand how many times that has happened... this MUST change!!

(and I *do* miss the pictures on the side of the blog... it was fun seeing something for each month)

Ha ha this sounds familiar! You'd think after running the RAGNAR two years without training I'd learn my lesson.... nope. I've ran three times since January. ha ha ha! Good luck with your next half marathon- It feels like a bigger accomplishment when you don't train :)
