Weekly running mileage: 20 miles
Sunday: 10 miles. Finished in time to tune into the last 5 minutes of the Vikings game.
Monday: Didn't run.
Tuesday: Didn't run.
Wednesday: 5 miles
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: Packing the camper to leave for the weekend. Meant to run on my afternoon off, but was called in to work.
Saturday: About 4 miles of hiking at Jay Cooke State Park. A little rainy most of the day and evening, but still had a good time. As we were multi-tasking this trip by bringing the camper loaded down with RR and V's deer stands we did not bring our bikes.
I blame my low weekly mileage directly on Ken Burns and his documentary on the National Parks. Or perhaps on PBS, who thought it would be a good idea to run the 6 part mini-series 6 days in a row. I felt tied to my t.v. for 4 days in a row before I finally had to say "enough" and resolve to watch the last 2 parts on DVD. A very good show, but I can't handle 2 hours of it every night all week. And why didn't I just run WHILE watching the show? Because it's "talk-heavy" and it's sometimes too hard to catch all the words while running. And I just didn't feel like it.
