Higher miles

I ran 8 miles tonight, 13km. Jake and I had been looking for a time to run together for a while and this was the first chance we had. It is so nice to have someone to run with. It takes your mind off the fact that you're running for over an hour. At the end we both had a bit of the jell-o legs, but felt good.

I feel 100% better then I did two weeks ago when I struggled through 6 miles.

A few shorter runs this week, plus I need to get my cross-training going again. Next weeks long run is 10 miles.


UPDATE (05/30/07 21:10)

Not that you care, but I realized today that I misread my schedule and this weeks long run was only supposed to be 6 miles, not the 8 miler that I did. But that's ok, because this will give me the option now of building my long runs to be longer than the half-marathon race distance.

Oh, and I'm going for a nice long bike ride tomorrow morning.

Nick I wish we lived a little closer to each other. It would be great to get a long run in with you. If you need to do one while in good old Cambridge anytime soon let me know!

Keep it up man!!

Please tell me your biking total is not up to date. Because right now I've done more than your total in the last week.

Unfortunately my biking numbers are up to date. Pathetic, I know. Life keeps getting in the way of training. What's up with that!
