Time to Come Clean
In earlier posts, I hinted at just how little I have been training.
It is even WORSE than I imagined. So, my training for Moab went into taper towards the end of February, maybe the very beginning of March. Moab was on March 25. I went back through Dailymile (and I absolutely DO log all my runs). The verdict is... depressing.
My only training runs over 6 miles:
4/8 - 11.88 miles (outside)
4/10 - 6.25 miles (outside)
4/30 - 6.38 miles (treadmill)
5/16 - 6.32 miles (treadmill)
5/23 - 6.00 miles (treadmill)
9/15 - 7.20 miles (outside)
10/6 - 6.66 miles (outside)
So in EIGHT months, I have only run over 6 miles SEVEN times. And in the last 5.5 months? Only twice.
And, if you noticed, only ONE double digit run, and that was over 8 months ago. That's ridiculous!!
Basically, the point of this is:
WTF. NO WONDER WHY RUNNING MARATHONS REALLY SUCKS LATELY.
Oh, hey. Maybe I should run more.
