I hit 600 miles for the year today

Post  charles.moman on Wed Jun 20, 2012 11:58 am

I went over 600 miles of running for the year this morning. Last year I did 900 miles for the entire year. My training schedule is pushing me, but so far I don't think I have crossed the line into overtraining. My long Friday runs coming up are 14, 24, 18, 14, 50k, 14, 25, 18, 10. Besides my overall fitness and increasing endurance, I think I am doing much better each week at mental toughness - not wimping out at the end of long runs. I also accepted a teaching position next year! What??? You retired in 2010! I will be teaching at a brand new charter school an hour away one day a week starting on August 8. The school is small - K-6, one class of each grade with a maximum of 20 students. It is in a teeny little town in the country and I am very excited to be a part of a new venture with some great staff. Plus, one day a week is very cool! Exclamation
