going long

Today: A boring post about running.

I'm halfway to my goal of running for a year without injury. And I'm running more miles per week than I used to. A couple weeks ago, I ran 26 miles, including an 11.4-mile long run. This week I hope to run 29.

Reasons why I'm not hurt:

  1. Slowly building up the mileage.
  2. Sticking to the run/walk method.
  3. Running slowly.
  4. Running mostly on grass and trails.
I'm feeling so good, I'm quite certain I'll run a marathon this fall. Can't decide between this one or that one.

In fact, I'm even starting to think maybe I'm on a path toward an ultra.
