weekly summary: 25 January – 31 January

So it was that one week in excess of 30 miles would be followed by another. Only barely and despite the rather accurate calculations, it wasn’t a must-reach target. Like I said last week, the newly-set, upper limit of 35 miles is something that I will keep under until I start back on the roads again. Any more than that on a treadmill is not going to do me any good.

There’s a strange familiarity to that 30-mile threshold now. It didn’t seem that hard to reach last week. Of course the midweek 10-miler helped with that. However, I’m reminded of recent memory before Christmas when I was trying to convince myself to run at all. Time really does move on and negative thoughts do go by the wayside; thankfully.

It’s still less than 4 hours running – that used to be a weekend! I keep saying things like that. Whether it’s poking fun at myself or disbelief I don’t know. However, I possibly should stop doing so. Good progress has been made and now that my weekly mileage is half-respectable again, I’m bringing back some of my old favourites such as strides during a run. This will help greatly with the overall fitness and strength. Hopefully it will serve me well and I’ll literally hit the ground running (well) when the time comes. Onwards!
