My week is closing out with a total of 23.6 miles run. I still haven't shaken the inconsistency that I picked up in 2021. I can't hold my focus across five days of running. I hit three consecutive weeks above twenty miles in early April, then the wheels came off and I hovered in the teens for four weeks. 2023 is about to be 25% over. This week, I return to success. The more consistent running makes me run more smoothly and improves my pace.
I'm focusing on building up my running miles consistently over 20 miles a week along with longer runs on Sunday. This is to build a base for some really overdue speed work. As I've gotten older, my pace has slowed too much. As for Sunday runs, I plan to take them into the high teens.
