living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

A quest for 80

For much of this month I haven't been looking at my overall mileage very closely. I've been feeling great and striving for continued consistency. By shifting my focus a bit, I didn't realize until the end of last week how close I was to 80 miles for the month -- before yesterday's run it was 18.9 miles to go; now it's 14.6. I also want to get to 20 miles for the week, so if I'm a bit short Saturday, I'll certainly nail it Sunday. There's something special about hitting 80 miles with where I've been since logging 120 miles in October. If I'm this excited about hitting 80, I can only imagine what it will feel like to get back to triple digits again later this year. I'm staying patient, but I'm also very excited for what's ahead.
