I have now been training for 6 weeks and here are my statistics -
Cycle ~ 77.81 miles
Other Fitness (Walking, elliptical machine, rollerblade) ~ 28.6 miles
Update #2 training miles = 154.27 with a combined total of 221.98 mi for 6 weeks of training !!!!
I have been an occasional runner for about 6 years and can now say with pride that I have run my farthest distance ever; 6 miles! I will make another jump this weekend to 7 miles, which I am looking forward to for the challenge. It is supposed to rain this weekend, and I will have house guests, but since it is family and they all support me & most run also we may just have a group run! SO FUN!!
I have been plagued by what appears to be plantar faciatis and have been working on calf stretching to relieve that issue. For the last week or so I have been having discomfort in my hips... May be age, but since it started when I increased my mileage I'm thinking that it is more training issues. So far, none of my issues have kept me from training so I will continue to stick to my schedule.
