If nothing else, blogging keeps me honest. Monday afternoon I posted about wanting to build my mileage. Monday evening I was sitting on the couch with only 6 miles for the day. I really just wanted to veg, but thought back to my post and dragged my ass out for another 5 miles.

Yesterday was another challenge. I'm trying to re-finish my deck. The problem is you can't do it above like 85 degrees. So I have to work in the morning and early afternoon before the sun comes around the house. So I postponed yesterday's run until the evening, so that I could work on stripping my deck.

After all that manual labor, I was a little leery about having to hop on the treadmill at 8 PM. However, it was one of those runs that within 3 steps I knew was going to be a good one. My legs felt really good and I managed 10 quicker miles in 76 minutes.

Now I sit here at 5 PM without any miles for the day, yet, and a 7 AM 16 miler planned for tomorrow. It might just be an easy 5 or 6 tonight. We'll see.

Since I'm watching the Tour de France, I'll use one of my favorites for the quote of the day;

"It doesn't get easier, you just go faster." - Greg Lemond
