On I went, out of the wood, passing the man leading without knowing I was going to do so. Flip-flap, flip-flap, jog-trot, jog-trot, curnchslap-crunchslap, across the middle of a broad field again, rhythmically running in my greyhound effortless fashion, knowing I had won the race though it wasn't half over, won it if I wanted it, could go on for ten or fifteen or twenty miles if I had to and drop dead at the finish of it, which would be the same, in the end, as living an honest life like the governor wanted me to. -Alan Sillitoe, "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"

Got to get the numbers up

I was just doing a review of my last few weeks' workouts...

Overall, I started this blog to get me out there. It's doing that: I've run every week for the past few months.

That said, I haven't gotten my mileage up to where I'd like it to be. I've YET to record a week that's above 20 miles! That's pathetic.
