So, for the past two weeks I've come in under my goal mileage.... 6.1 two weeks ago, and 6.2 last week. If I choose to take tomorrow off, it'll be the third week in a row: 3.7 off goal distance.
3.7 isn't all that much; physiologically speaking, the difference between 59.3 miles and 63 isn't significant. But it's pointing to a trend which I'm finding disturbing.
I'm running hard, though, and that's what I can use to justify it. I'm putting the time in. I'm putting the effort in. It's just that I can be a little bit obsessive compulsive, and I want to get my miles in, dammit! Three weeks of falling short gets to me. *grumble*
