The Fairest Week In Review: 1/21

Just Jenn this week - Moon has been a busy bee. I have a HUGE backlog of links for the roundup, though, so I'm forging ahead despite the fact that I was on the Beltway for SEVEN HOURS last night. I know it was snowing, people, but GET IT TOGETHER.

Hmm? What? My training? Oh. Well. The week after the marathon I pretty much took off. I've started running again, but given that my Achilles injury has being holding me back for a couple months I want to make sure I ease in rather than immediately start doing speed runs and virtual halves.

The end result is, of course, the third month in a row when I won't be hitting 100 miles total. This used to be unheard of. Positively unthinkable. And I can't say it isn't messing with my mind a little. BUT. I am holding to my gentle ramp up plan because I am forcing myself to recognize that it's more important to ease my transition.

The good news is that my Achilles hasn't been bugging me at all! Hooray! Here's hoping the trend continues and I'll be pumping out ten milers again next month.

And now for the real reason we're all here: the roundup.
