No Time!

I can only assume that there are two reasons for the 10% rule of gradually increasing your running mileage.

First, it is so you don't get hurt, blah blah blah.
Second, and most importantly, it is because you need to organize your life in such a way that you can account for the time commitment required.

This week, I’m running 30 miles. I peak out at 58.

You see, quite ironically, I’m running so much that I haven’t had time to actually BLOG about running so much! So, I’ve told myself that since I’m running my first EVER hill workout tonight and should be running very fast, I’ll have time to blog about my training for the Twin Cities Marathon.

That, or I’ll be so zonked out by the intense workout that I’ll keel over in my hotel room and not get anything more done. I’m hoping for #1.
