Stillll Going...

For those that check back from time to time, I am still moving along. Still not feeling great about fitness and strength. I have completed 4-20+ mile runs now...the last one being 21 miles. Of those, only one was a strong effort. The others have essentially become survival efforts.

I finally completed a tempo run successfully, and I plan to run a progressive effort this week. I want at least 2 more 20+ mile efforts, and Ideally, they will be strong efforts.

With the temps like they have been in Houston, I have struggled like never before. I used to think of myself as a pretty steady runner regardless of conditions, but this heat is proving otherwise. When the temps or the humidity dip just a little, it's been making all the difference in the world.

I'll check back in as Chicago nears just to drop a note hear and there for those that check back.
