Tuesdays on the Run: Getting my Mileage Up Again

I’m happy to report that my mileage is getting back up again. I ran 5 of 7 days this week and nearly got in 20 miles. I still haven’t run more than about 4.5 miles, but I’m hopeful I’ll be there soon.

This week included:

I even got in a few outdoor runs – Sunday and Friday. And, Friday, I ran after work – something I NEVER do. I somehow slept through my 5 a.m. alarm Friday morning and woke up to FW getting up at 6:15 ish. It was too late to get in a run (I’m done working out by 6:30), so I just assumed I would not be able to run. But, around 5 p.m. I decided to go for a run. It was hot and humid, but I was happy to get in some miles!

Friday’s mileage

My piriformis is still acting up a little bit, but I’ve been doing these stretches and rolling it out on the foam roller on occasion to keep it from hurting too much. I’m hoping to get in at least one 5-miler this week and work my way back up with mileage!

Some questions for you:

  • What time of day do you typically run?
  • What’s a “long” run for you?

  1. Congrats on working the mileage back up! Running 5 of 7 days is awesome. I’m an early morning running (before 7) or it doesn’t get done. Right now “long” is 20 miles since Berlin is 4 weeks out. Yikes. The Spoonk Acupressure mats helps my piriformis a ton. I posted about it a week or 2 ago. There’s a discount on it until 9/1.

  2. Yay for mileage building! You know my run time is the AM! Right now, my long run is between 10-14. Won’t be going up any time soon. Excited for your progress 🙂
