We are still managing to hold on to some fairly nice weather, so I snuck out while Jen and the kids were at Sunday School and got in a decent 12+ miles. The only problem was, I left myself about 4 miles of uphill as the finish. Normally, that would not be a big deal, except just as I started north to head home the wind picked up pretty steady. So I ran the last 4 miles uphill into headwinds of 20-30 miles per hour. That is not really enjoyable.
I did manage to get 34 miles this week, and I am feeling stronger. At this point I will maintain my week day mileage then extend my longer weekend runs to build up to the 40-50 miles per week I need to be at in the next month. I have about 6-7 weeks still before taper, and I would like to get 3 to 4 runs of 20+ miles in (with one at 30+) before the second week of April.
I do have a 3 day weekend this weelend, so we just need to figure out what to do tomorrow with our free time. Skiing? Playing? Most likely cleaning.... blah.
