just a brief update on miles for the last couple of weeks. the week of the 4th wasn’t as strong as i’d hoped it to be but i will say i started bringing my pace back to where it should be and i felt strong so that’s a plus. then this past week was rough since we were in NC but i managed to get in two runs up there and then a 10-miler the day after we got home to save the week from being ridiculously light. one of the runs i did in NC was amazing! i met up with a local running group ~ the stridders ~ and joined them on a 5-mile trail run. not only was the run through beautiful woods but i was sadistically in awe of the hills. made me realize just how flat florida really is. damn! my butt hurt like hell the next day! loved it!

another thing i took a way from the trip was a new “itch”. sab and i hiked some bike trails one day and i totally wanted to get a mountain bike and try it out. i know, i just finished saying how flat florida is, but there are some decent trails around here built on old phosphate mines. i’ve run some of them and could definitely see them being a great place to start learning how to mountain bike. buns has a friend he thinks does it ~ and has an extra bike ~ that should be running with us tomorrow so i’ll talk to him about it and see if he’s willing to let me tag along one day.

anyway, now that i’m back i am determined to really get back into my routine. actually i’m still sort of establishing a new one and i’m not really sure how i feel about it all yet. i haven’t run with the group in almost two months (besides shamrock). i lowered the mileage. and i’m still really aiming to mix in more cross training. i think i need to sit down and really detail out my “plan”. even if i’m not going to train, per se, for a few months. i still function better with a detailed schedule. this week has the potential to be strong. i just can’t let everything with jc ~ and an upcoming date with someone new ~ distract me from my focus.
