Last week was not a running week. But that's okay.
My daughter had surgery, so she was my focus--as it should have been. There are times that I need to put running & myself first. But there are times that my family comes before any run. And this was one of those times.
It kinda killed me that I missed the first 20-miler on my schedule. But many have told me that I only need one 20-miler and there is plenty of time for that yet.
But this week I'm back! I'm excited to wake up early and run. This is going to be a spectacular running week. My kids are all off school, which means I can get back to the house at 6:45am when Bean leaves for work and still have more than an hour before I need to leave for work.
I'm planning 18 miles for Friday. A perfect way to run off my Thanksgiving meals! I really want to do 20, but my longest run so far is 16 miles and that was a few weeks ago. So to avoid injury and continue to build up appropriately, I'll do the next distance on my schedule. 20 will still be there a week or two from now.
Lily is having a hard time sleeping right now. Here's hoping I'll get enough sleep to run!
