I feel like this has been my life lately —>
With the amount that I travel for work, I’ve become a professional airplane sleeper. Some people choose to work on flights, I choose to sleep. It makes the flight go by so much quicker!
I always try to get a window seat near the back of the plane (where the engines are loudest and mask the sounds of passengers who think it’s ok to talk to each other), put in earplugs (to further block out the sounds of people talking), and then put on my sunglasses (since they don’t always dim the cabin lights for takeoff, and I’m too self-conscious to wear an eye-mask for non-longhaul flights). I’m usually asleep before the wheels are off the ground. Someday I’ll invest in one of those nerdy neck pillows.
Anyways, between travel for work and a quick trip up to Kansas City to take care of some personal business, I feel like I’ve been running around been non-stop the last two weeks. Only I haven’t actually been running anywhere. Last week I got in a whopping 11 miles of running, but I did get in about 70 miles on the bike, commuting to/from the office. Unfortunately, it’s the running that I care more about right now.
I still haven’t finalized my decision whether or not I’m going to run the Rocky Raccoon 100. I should probably decide soon since the race is less than 12 weeks away. As shameful as it was, the last time (and only time) I ran 100 miles, I averaged a whopping 22 miles per week for the 16 weeks leading up to the race. So at least last week’s mileage put’s me halfway there!
