Another weekend gone by in a flash - and we even got an extra hour! And is it really November already???
Saturday morning at 7am, I set out to do my longest run ever! I was really nervous and really cold! I decided to do a 4 mile stretch of running path 3 times so I could run to the car to refill my water and grab my energy gummies. The first 2 of my 3 trips seemed ridiculously easy but by mile 9 it started to get hard. Just in time, at mile 10, my husband surprised me on his bike and stopped to take a picture. I'm not sure I've ever been happier to see anyone in my life - it gave me the energy I needed for those last 2 miles - up hill in the direct sun!
|Mile 10 - feeling like the luckiest girl in the world!|
|This is as close to ready as I'm going to get!|
|30 mile week goal achieved!!!!!!|
I was really surprised at how good I felt for the rest of the day. I stretched really well with *help* from Lucy
Sunday was a day of rest and beer drinking in the afternoon which sent me to bed at 7:30. Felt really rested this morning obviously :)
My (stupid) foot felt like it needed another day of rest from running so I'm headed to yoga this afternoon. It's so important to maintain my yoga practice and my strength training but it's really hard to fit that all in with all that running! Should be easier now as I'm starting to taper down now for my race which is just over 3 weeks away!
It's funny how my life isn't so much of a mix tape but more of an extended, one track remix right now. I eat, sleep and breathe running but I will (honestly honey, I swear) not be obsessed and I will slow down a bit between half marathons :)
Have a happy, healthy week everyone!
