This was a three run week with a 12 miler on Saturday. Our dynamic duo is at 45%!! I’m pretty confident that we will hit 50% before the halfway mark. Weather was cold, but had some decent temperate moments. This weeks looks like a low in the high 30s/mid 40s which is a great swing in temperature for me. I’m looking forward to getting a lot of miles in. Instead of the 6, 5, and 4 miles leading up to the weekend, I’m going to go with 6, 6, and 5. I’m feeling healthy enough slightly increase the weekly run. I may try for 11 on Saturday (instead of my normal 10). I’m essentially working toward the El Paso Half Marathon at this point, so I should be stepping my miles up.
The challenge administrators have this monthly bingo book that has different challenges that you can try and meet. If you get them done, you will get a $50 voucher toward another race from the company. I’ve considered doing it, but I’m not sure if I want to use my brain power to log and attempt the challenges. Still, it seems kinda fun. I know I’ve gotten some of these done and in some cases it would be easy to accomplish. I may attempt the bingo next month.
I still need to find another race to do 3rd Quarter (April-June). I want to make this race a trip. My options will be New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Of course, by that time the challenge will be over. Perhaps I’ll find another challenge to do once this one is done. I am enjoying the daily grind of getting in miles. Since it will be spring and going into summer, I expect I will be putting in more miles via walks, bike, and running.
