Since my knees were bothering me a little bit before my travels, I'm going to chalk it up as a good thing that I did not hit my mileage while traveling. Actually, considering the amount of walking we did in London, I very well may be close to the mileage I was going for, I just wasn't running those miles on my schedule. And my knees are feeling better - ready to run.
Now that I'm back, I'm committed to hitting my goal mileage this week:
Today: 7 mile challenge run (speedwork!)
Tomorrow: 6 mile easy run
Friday: rest or cross train
Saturday: 18 mile long run (Holy cow, 18?!?!? This is for real.)
Follow along and see if I can really get that many miles in!
London was a blast, but I'm glad to be back. Just one more thing to close - Sunday we visited this exhibit at the Portrait gallery, which was excellent. I love Dorothy Wilding's image of the queen for her coronation, and I love this quote:
"Let us not take ourselves too seriously."
~Queen Elizabeth II
In lieu of a long run, this weekend was more about coffee and good friends. Because, it's good to have a balance.
Off to get 7 miles in!
(PS, I'm back to posting in real time. Thanks for catching up.)
