58 days. Less than two months to go. This might seem like a lot, but not to me. I've been counting down to August 21st for...the last 223 days. And now it is less than two months away. That means five more weeks of build up, three weeks of "taper", and then it is game on.
That causes the following reaction.
My weekly mileage runs are not high enough, I haven't run far enough, I'm too slow...blah blah blah been down this path before. Needless to say, if I'm freaking like this with two months to go, I hate to even imagine what kind of Super Freak I will be pulling around race time. Beware.
I had a rest week last week. It was thirty miles. I'm not going to even mention how many weeks I have had running over thirty miles in my entire life, but it is not a lot. Strange for it to be a "rest" week. I'm hoping to hit sixty for the first time this week, and max at 75 or so before the taper begins. Right. You know in this fantasy runs-a-lot world I live in.
