Crazy week equals crazy miles. Even with the help of my family and the support that I receive some weeks are just crazy. This week we will end with 56 miles of running. Yikes that is a lot of time running and training.
Tuesday - 6.5 miles, treadmill, hills / weights
Wednesday – 5 miles, treadmill, hills
Thursday – 10.5 will be ran tonight / weights
Saturday – 24 miles on the trails
Sunday – 10 miles
One week closer to the big event. At least now when I look at the training schedule I see that we are more than half way into this madness.
Here is a question… how on earth does a person afford to sign up for events?? Take in account the cost of travel, food and the expense of shoes, gear, supplements etc. This past year my husband presented a race budget to me. This was to help with picking the races that meant the most to me instead of signing up for everything. I love scooting out new adventures!! Well I am now looking at a race for February and need to send the entry form in now. Man I sure could use a money tree…. a sponsor…. something.
Do any of you run into the same problem?? Have any creative solutions?
