One of my stated goals for the month is to hit 100+ miles by feet (run+walk). We are now smack dab in the middle of the month. So how am I doing?
drum roll please...
56.2 miles by feet (25.5 running, 30.7 mi walking).
Thank you, knee!! I'm on track!!
I also put a few tentative races on my sidebar earlier in the month, all 5K or 10K options. I've decided that I'm not going to do anything at Chips&Salsa so I will be taking that off my list
Which brings me to an interesting exchange that I had with someone yesterday.
I was walking the dogs up the hill and came across a man who was doing hill repeats. I have walked this route 12 times already this month. Occasionally I see people running or walking up that hill, but I have never seen anyone doing hill repeats there before. So it really caught my attention.
On my way down, I happened to be walking by while he was catching his breath and taking a swig of water. Seemed awkward to pass by without saying anything, so I asked "What are you training for?"
He said "Just for fun."
Huh? Nobody does hill repeats for fun, do they? If you are doing hill repeats, I'm guessing you must be training for something. But whatever. I just kept on walking and left it at that.
After walking another half mile or so, I saw him again. He came running past me he said "Actually, there's a race here in a few weeks"
"Oh yeah, the Corrida de Corrales. I'm thinking about running that too," I responded.
Phew. Well at least I'm not crazy. He *is* training for something. And I am keeping that one on my sidebar for now. But I won't be doing hill repeats for it. LOL.
