Weekly Update July 18 - 24, 2011

Another good week as far as miles go.  I was able to hit my 50 mile goal yesterday after a couple runs.  This after taking 2 days off.  Something I don't like to do!

I had 3 really intense days at the gym and that helped push the total miles to 50.  Life got i the way a couple times this past week.  Wednesday was date night with my wife and I decided I didn't want to get home late, get showered and then only have a short time for our date.  Friday my legs were tired from the 16 total miles I did on Thursday , so I decided to rest them for the race on Saturday.  I know the 'streak' was important for awhile and I know I still don't like missing days, but I also know that it's ok to miss once and a while.

The race in Dothan, Al went well and I was able to meet more of my Dailymile friends.  All in all, it was a great week.  My next race is the Bushwacker 5K on August 6th.  This race starts out in Gulf Breeze and finishes on our beach.  The finish includes going over the Bob Sikes bridge which is pretty steep.  It's gonna be a hot one!

Happy running!

Great week, Steve! Of course it's ok to take a day or 2 off here and there. :) Especially if it involves a date night w/ the wifey! :))) Gotta keep the queen happy... at least that's how it works at my house. lol
