Back in SpoVegas
Well its nice to be back in SpoVegas. The running camp in Montana was really great! I wish I could have stayed for the second week, but its crunch time for finding a job.
I have to give props to my new shoes. My last pair (Asics DS 9) were pretty bad, almost worse than the pair that had 700 miles (Asics DS 8) on before I finally retired them. This new pair looks like a winner though. (Asics 2090)
Today's run was pretty slow, I'm still recovering from Montana where the normal run was 35 minutes of grueling hill, followed by 28 minutes of constant downhill. I managed to get in a solid 12.5 miles before the heat of the day hit - 95 degrees right now! Fortunately the weather here is changing tomorrow back into the 70s.
So I've been avoiding figuring out exactly how far behind 80 min/day I am but here goes...so I'm currently averaging 51.9 minutes per day over the past 41 days. Meaning I need only to average 2 hours and 37 minutes per day for the next two weeks to reach my goal. But if I average 80 min per day for the next two weeks I'll get up to 59.4 per day which I suppose is acceptable.
James' Running day 41 of 56, averaging 80 minutes per day.
Current Average: 51.9 minutes/day (2127/41)
YTD Mileage: 1262.5 miles/ Miles behind Alison: LOL
Tues: AM Power Lines, Camelot from Dav, 12.5 miles (95 min)
Mon: AM Switchbacks 4.5 miles (41 min)
