Training Day: 18
Miles: 4 (intervals)
Time: 43 min
Shoes: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21
Weather: N/A (indoors on a treadmill)
Strength Training: Biceps
How It Felt: Bicep workout felt good, and I feel like I’m getting stronger. I fucking love intervals! I felt strong and fast, and it gives me hope that I’ll be able to get a good time on a 5k in the future, lol.
Commentary: After careful contemplation, I decided to move my 100 miler up a few months. I don’t like the idea of my long runs messing up my weekends. I know I can make it work this year, but I don’t want to do it half of next year as well. So, instead of doing my 100 miler July of next year, I’m doing it April of next year.
Now I know three months isn’t a super significant move up, but that’s three nice weather months where there’s way more to do outside on the weekends.
I’m also confident I will be ready by the end of April. Hell, there’s a good chance I can be ready before that, but a little extra time training shouldn’t hurt.
When I first thought about my 100 miler goal, I wondered if I would continue to run ultras after I met my goal. Pretty sure that’s not going to happen. I enjoy running, but I enjoy a lot of other activities too. Instead of being a goal, running will just become another one of the many activities I do. And I think I’ll be okay with that.
Endlessly seeking adventure.
