I am at 127 miles for the month and I am a little tired. Today, after 3 days off from running, I just didn't feel up to running far or fast. Since it has been a long month and a long couple days with a sick 2 year old at home, I decided a slow 6 miler would do. I can make up for it with the speed work I am going to do tomorrow. I am thinking a work out of alternating 200 and 400 meter repeats with only 60 second rests in between.
Tomorrow should be quite painful. I cannot wait. I am getting a solid base of miles right now and the new piece I need to consistently add, is the speed stuff.
I was listening to a good podcast on Athlete on Fire today. It was with the founder of the website Run Repeat. Run Repeat is a website with thousands of shoe reviews by the people that matter, runners. It isn't brand specific and the site doesn't sell out to a specific brand or marketing campaign.
The founder, Jens, talked a lot about quality training and intervals, hard workouts, etc. I was happily surprised that the website, Run Repeat, barely came up. I do think it is a cool site and I may test it out next time I need some sneakers.
