5 miles at 5:20am. tired and slow. could be from mileage, but more likely from sleep. i’ve been barely averaging 7 hours a night if that. i need to sleep more but balancing engineering classes, work, and running is tough, plus i need to find time to study for the MCAT. i’ll figure out a way to balance everything over the next week or two, but any semblance of free time is out the window.

10 miles at 7:20am. kept it honest on miles 3-9, especially on the uphills. last uphill(about 1.2 miles left) i felt my right achilles ache for a second so i stopped and stretched and took it easier for the rest. didn’t feel it again.

10 miles after my shift at 7:30pm. as i finished mile 10 i sank to my knees and pounded the grass in triumph. not something i’d do normally, but 125 miles in 4 and a half days... i don’t even know what to say. i’m beyond blessed to have such a capability for mileage.

Beast mode. I cannot wait for you to feel how easy racing feels after all of this mileage. It's truly an unbelievable feeling. The 'flow' you will likely feel is indescribable. Even if your body is still aching, it doesn't matter.

thanks Mike! iím probably gonna wait until december to get the first rust-buster race in, but even now this mileage is unbelievable. i canít believe iím about to run a 150 mile week(knock on wood!) and it doesnít even feel like that big of a deal. i canít even imagine the shape iíll be in if i can get two or three months of that kind of mileage in - 2020 is gonna be a hell of a year for running PRís, body permitting!

and iím sure after getting down some marathon tactics youíll be running sub 2:20 in no time!!

If you want it done give it to busy person you are getting it done for sure. Knock on wood we don't want any ugly injuries.

Incredible mileage.

what a great proverb Yasir.

i canít believe iíve been training hard enough the blog-reknowned Burt acknowledges it!

From Burt on Sun, Aug 25, 2019 at 11:22:04 from

Blog-reknowned? What the? LOL! Hey, it's because you're intimidating. I'm always at the bottom of the mileage board! Also, I'm a civil engineer and I can't understand why you're taking engineering classes and the MCAT. I didn't want to sound stupid.
