Not Much Better, But Better Nonetheless

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.-- Steve Jobs

This week I tallied 58.5 miles. It is the most that I have ever run in one week. I'm not proud of myself nor is this a celebration. The thing that I am happy about is how I feel. It wasn't a grind. I ran 7 days straight and I could have gone out today. I decided to rest because my program called for it but I don't feel beaten up.

Yesterday I did 15 miles. It was only 2 minutes faster than last week's 15 miler but this one felt so much better. It was also a new route where I got to see new things.

Unfortunately it rained the entire 15 miles. The good part is that I was completely soaked before I hit a mile. I got splashed by 3 cars and I was so drenched that I had to stop taking pictures because my finger or phone was to slippery and I couldn't slide the unlock button over..

It rained so much that around half way or so my brain said that it wasn't raining that hard. I took off my hood and I ran as though it was a light drizzle.

I'm excited about this week. I'm running a mixture of things. I'm doing a double, speed work, a long run and a tempo run. I intend to keep it simple this week and stick to the script.
