I am thinking of doing a giveaway to get more people to read my blog. I'm just not sure how to go about promoting it. Got any ideas? Let me know. I hope your training is going well. I hope your legs are light and springy and you have plenty of left over energy for your family. :)

So I ran a 1/2 marathon...4 WEEKS AGO!! Why are my legs still dead? I haven't had one run where I've felt really good since then. Every mile is a struggle. Yes, I did run 33 miles last week which is a lot for me, but they were all hard miles. None that felt light and speedy. So this week I have been slacking. I do not have the energy I should of late, and my running is stealing energy from my family. There is just not enough to go around. So I've run twice this week for two reasons... 1 - to see if I have more energy for my family (Yes I do!) and 2 - to see if my legs can recover (Not sure yet). I think I'm bagging our group long run in the morning as the forecast calls for 100% rain from this afternoon through all of tomorrow. I will get a few on the treadmill but my guess is my weekly mileage this week to be 1/2 of what it was last. I am expecting more next week - energy, miles and speed.
