Getting Over the Hump
My main focus for this training block is to start out easy and get back into a routine of running more consistently. Only running 40 miles for the month of May and starting my training in June, I realize it’s going to be a much slower than usual progression towards feeling comfortable running. The first step is and was the hardest. There were quite a few days where I didn’t feel fresh and had little energy. My legs were tired from being off for a while and it didn’t help that it’s heating up for the summer and humidity is upper 90%. I didn’t hit all my weekly goals but I did get in 114 miles for this phase.
