Seriously, it was ridiculous. It was the perfect storm of work and home responsibilities that resulted in my weekly mileage being in the single digits. Three weeks out from a half marathon, this is less than ideal.
Last week I had a pretty good hilly 11 mile long run and was feeling pretty confident about the 2 half marathons that are quickly approaching. This week I could barely finish 6 miles. It was disappointing to say the very least. But sulking about it isn't going to do me any good. This is a new week and I have that much more motivation to get some pretty decent runs in.
I have one more double digit run before my first race. This weekend we are packing the kids and heading north to my most favorite place - Vermont. I have a run all mapped out on a running path in Stowe and I couldn't be more excited about it.

In other news I am contemplating running my first trail race the week after my half marathon.
It is a local 6 miler. I wouldn't race it necessarily as it is a week after my first half and 2 weeks before my second. But I think it would be a fun little jaunt through the woods. We'll see. The jury is still out.
