Coming off my biggest week of the year (59 miles), I was interested to see how I felt. End result: not too shabby! Still, this week will be a slower week as I dedicate more time in preparation for my duties as head cheerleader at Grandma's for Ellie. I plan on making her laugh, keeping her motivated, and also having a blast tracking her progress from Two Harbors to Duluth. It's gonna be fun!
Monday was a simple 4 miles, followed by 3 on Tuesday. Wednesday got filed as a ZERO, but today I made up for it by putting in 16 miles on the Ice Age Trail in 2:11 (8:11 pace...not bad!). The best part of the run? I got back to my car, stripped down to my shorts, and found no evidence of ticks!
This morning's run consisted of the Southern-most 8 miles of the IAT in the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest, which is the only part of the 31+ miles I had not run yet. I've officially covered every step of the little yellow dots on the map found here.
I don't see much running in my future for the rest of the week, but next week I'll be back at it. In the meantime, wish Ellie luck!
