18.12 Challenge - Training week #9 and 15k Race
Wednesday, July 09, 2014
Woohoo! Life is good!
Run 1 - 7.29 miles (Hot and Humid, pretty slow going)
Run 2 - 4.07 miles (Felt pretty darn good)
Run 3 - 10.6 miles (LSR? Great hike with my pals!)
Run 4 - 9.3 miles (15k Race)
All in all, this week was pretty good. I'm sure the 4 day Holiday weekend had something to do with that. My new inhaler seems to be helping a whole lot, yes!
I ran my first 15k this week and it was also mostly a trail race which I have not done either. The other runners were maniacs! And I say that in a loving and admirable way. Oh how I wish I could run like that! They are inspiring. A bunch of very fit and fast runners of various ages.
I basically took my time being careful so I would not trip on any tree roots or rocks. I really do not want to get injured and have to bail on my training or worse yet, bail on the races that I am training for. I seen several bloody knees in the bunch and I didn't want to be in that group. I also found, the bifocals and trail running do not go together very well.
I made to the end without getting hurt and I am fairly happy with my time, I would always love to be faster but hey I finished it.
Who is this girl? Never would I have guessed that I would be doing the things I am doing today. Loving life!
