I was able to take advantage of the Thanksgiving holiday (and having extra family around) to get in some longer than normal runs this past week. I didn’t really start the week off with high mileage in mind, rather, I was just hoping to get back to some consistent training and perhaps burn a few extra calories. As it turned out, I burned a lot of extra calories—and good thing, too, because I consumed my fair share, on my way to 45 miles on the week.
While I might not hit 45 miles again in upcoming weeks, I do hope to be able to continue getting out for some longer runs. I really do enjoy getting the extended time out there, especially now that we’re finally experiencing some cooler weather in Texas. In case you’re curious, here’s what the week looked like:
So what’s next? Well, as I mentioned, I do hope to keep getting out for some longer runs on a consistent basis. Beyond that, I desperately need to clean up my diet and drop some weight that I’ve picked up over the past 2.5 years. Perhaps I’ll start looking for some races, too.
