117 Days to Go - Running Accounting
Then there is the whole accounting of the "actuals" of running vs the "budgeted" running plan.
This last week the running budget said, (in a deep, menacing, Chief Financial Officer voice "You shall run 48 miles, with back-to-back runs on Saturday and Sunday of 22 and 10 miles." Meanwhile, the actual running voice said (in a wimpy, thick glasses, and orthopedic shoes voice) "Maybe you should uh, you know taper for that race next weekend. Yeah thats it taper. That sounds scientific. Never mind that race is just a training run, cut back, live a little. Maybe something like twenty miles total? Sweeeeee-dish."
So I didn't exactly hit the mark. And really haven't the last three weeks in a row, but who is counting?
Besides if I was fully trained, it might not be a real challenge. We wouldn't want that now would we? /snicker.
