|My group on our 20 mile run, August 20, 2011|
So, it's really circumstantial that I don't have the speed this year that I had last year. Still, even my short runs seemed super slow, so I think I need to put some focus into doing some speed work over the next month or so.
Like I said, I've now made it up to 20 miles with my group. This weekend was supposed to be a 22 miler, but the schedule was changed slightly so that we'll be dropping back down to 17 miles. We have a lot of new group members and they'll need the extra time. Quite frankly, I could use the lower mileage just for my own sanity. Once we get through that run, we'll have a 23 miler and a 26 miler and then we'll be going into taper.
It's getting cooler and I must say that I really love running in the fall. I think I appreciate running in all four seasons, but fall and spring are the best. I have two short trips this coming month as well, but I should be able to still get my mileage in.
Happy September, and have a lovely holiday weekend!
