I did very little running while spending the week down in Detroit visiting my family. Sadly, this is more than I’ve done at home lately. It’s easier to get out the door early in the morning when I can pass off the kids to my mom before she goes to work. However, it was super hot out (high 80s, 90s), so I made it out a whopping three times. This route was a little farther than I’d planned, and amazingly, it’s hillier in the ‘burbs where my parents live than where I do.
I have totally missed the first four weeks of training. Haven’t done a long run. Wouldn’t be able to finish it even if I tried. I’m changing my goals and hoping to be at a point in a month where I can put in some long distances and somehow get to a 20 miler before the marathon, which is in 14 weeks, by the way.
This is starting to feel like a really dumb, unrealistic goal. I had no idea it would take me this long after having the baby to not feel so awfully out of shape.
