Oboy. I just laid out my training schedule for Boggs Mt. and it's . . . extensive. I've got some serious milage planned. I'm a little overwhelmed with some of these numbers.
I start out next week with a 22 mile week. Some 20-odd weeks later this milage peaks with a 54 mile week. My monthly milage will leap from a 100 mile month (this is a milestone I just reached) up to a 170 mile month. This just boggles my mind! I don't want to think about it too much.
Traditionally I run about 80% of the miles I schedule myself for. 80% of 170 is still a completely ridiculous number for me to comprehend at the moment. Running 5 days a week, back-to-back long runs, serious weekly milage, I've got to figure out nutrition, motivation, time management (seriously, will I have to get up before 9am to make some of this work?), gear choices, food choices . . . ahhhh! My mind just wants to split open.
My body just wants to do this (maybe without the hail):
