I decided to make a list of what makes for a popular blog, since I'm disgustingly popular. We all know these things, but here it is in quick-and-simple list form. Ready? Here we go!
- Run really fast
- Eat delicious but healthy and picturesque oatmeal for every meal
- Have a fantastically hot boyfriend
- Have a fantastically hot bod
- Live somewhere exciting and go out for dinner every night
- Have a kid
- Good writing skills optional
I fall into none of these categories. Unless you want to call Bailey my kid, which is untrue-she's technically my sister. This is why they pay me the big bucks.
Here's a summary of what I got up to this week exercise-wise:
Saturday: 8 miles on new trails!
Sunday: short hike with my dad
Monday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 3 boring and somewhat painful miles on the treadmill
Thursday: 5 miles
Total: 21 miles, 1 1/2 hours hiking
Not bad! It was the first time in a while that I've gone over 20 miles. Of course, there were some growing pains (to be expected, I guess), but I'm keeping an eye on it and icing/compressing like a pro. I'm going to start marathon training towards the end of February (for a late-June marathon-I'll talk about this at some point), and I'm hoping to be up around 25 miles/week at that point. Should be more than doable.
