It's all Downhill from Here

I’m tired.

I just completed my highest mileage week ever, 47 miles, which immediately followed my best month ever at 173 miles.

Physically I feel great. Surprisingly I have no aches or pains, but I’m exhausted. I have to say I’m looking forward to a couple of lower mileage weeks. This week I’ll run around 32 miles with a 12 mile long run, and next week 25 miles with the longest run only 8 miles.

I can’t remember the last time I had a weekend that wasn’t completely dedicated to preparing to run, running, and recovering from running.  It sounds luxurious.

20 more days left and already I find myself wondering – What’s next?


  1. Following along per the norm but looking forward to your inevitable taper tantrums.
    Good times!

  2. I know that feeling of relief, "ah, only an 11 miler this weekend" for example. Enjoy the recovery week. You definatly deserve it.
