2x in one day!

Today was not the first time that I ran twice in one day... though I think that it has been less than five times in my life, but that's beside the point. However, today was the first time that I ran twice in one day this semester and definitely during this project thus far. I decided to take a homework break, since I worked on homework from like... 4:00 until 11:00 and still have a lot to do, so I went on a little run.

I didn't push myself too hard and my mileage wasn't too long, considering my 6+ miles from this morning and my nearly 6 miles from last night. I ran 3.36 miles, which brings my total for today to a little bit more than 9 and a half miles, which, I supppose is pretty decent.. lol.

In the next few weeks, I'd like to build up my endurance a little more and definitely work on my speed. Distance is great and I admit that completely, but I'd like to be able to run more quickly without feeling like I might pass out afterward. I'm going to do some research on that (wow, I'm outting myself as an English/Psych major, I think) and find out what kinds of things I can do to up my speed while still getting decent distance, while doing eight million other things in life.

Ending thought for the night: Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to do nothing but run and sleep? ...and eat and the neccessities.
...and swim, too.

Goal: 1000 miles/365 days
So far: 68.89 miles/29 days
To go: 931.11 miles/336 days


  1. two-a-days great way to build endurance and easier to work miles in during the day in smaller increments. keep up good work

  2. that was a good job doing 2 in one day. I'm sure it felt very rewarding and got you going on your milage too.
