|Goodies from my staff. The pringles and swedish fish will be road tripping with Kaelynn and I this afternoon|
So what have I been up to in the world of running lately? Well, I am in week 2 of my training plan for my next running adventure that my friend Joe was kind enough to create for me. So far my training has been going very well. Last week was a nice and easy recovery week.
|35 recovery miles|
Why did I run 35 miles during a recovery week you ask? Well so I can see what I am made of in September when I toe the line of my fall marathon in Erie, PA. I am not quite ready to share my goal for this race just yet but let me just say I am ready, willing, and able to put in the work that will be required to meet my goal.

This week's training has gone very well. I ran 6 easy miles on both Tuesday and Thursday and did my first track workout on Wednesday. I am very pleased will how all of these runs went. It was outlandishly hot yesterday which did remind me that it is best to sacrifice a little bit of shut eye and get the workout done before the sun comes up! I am currently sitting at 19 miles for the week and the training plan calls for 6 miles tomorrow and 12 miles on Sunday. As I mentioned in my April in review, I will sacrifice mileage any day for my kids so I will likely be sacrificing my 6 mile run tommorrow as I will be in Ann Arbor with Kaelynn for her final ice skating competition of the 2012-2013 season. Fortunately it works out that I will be home to do my long run on Sunday so I am not sacrificing all 18 miles this weekend! Like Joe said don't worry too much about it because this early in the training program it isn't even a spec of sand on the beach. I like how you think Joe!
To snag a line from Joe, one of the greatest athletes I have the pleasure of being friends with, it's time to go to work!
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
