Runner’s Diary: So, I didn’t quite run 10 miles this week

It’s evident what stretching before a run will do for you. Better recovery, fewer aches and improved runs.

My goal this week was 10 miles for the week, up from 7.35 the week before. I didn’t quite get there, but I did up my total.

8.84 miles

So, my long run for Sunday was 4.20 miles, a totally average run for me two years ago.

Weather conditions were nearly perfect: started at about 49 degrees with sunshine and a very light Oklahoma breeze. If anything was negative about the conditions, it would be the angle of thesun right now. It’s right in your eyes during the early-to-mid-morning hours.

For the second week in a row, I earned my miles across three runs, one gym run, one neighborhood run and one long neighborhood run.

The first neighborhood did feature some resistance as soon-to-be 10-year-old Olivia tan with me tugging to my running shirt as if I were a horse.

I’m still taking way too many walking breaks for my taste, but I’m moving — and for any of you out there looking to start a fitness program that involves running, moving is the point.

We’ll try for 10 cumulative miles this week.

Happy running!
