16 miles, I did that???
Sunday, June 08, 2014
I'm in training for my 3rd half marathon, so I feel almost confident, but not all the way. I decided, when my training partner decided she wanted to run 13.1 early, after only a max 10 mile run for me, that I wanted to do it too! So I did it, being awarded a really nice metal! That was last week-end, but then I decided I didn't want to max at 13 before the half, I wanted to exceed it. I decided to do 15 this week, however, time, running groups and things ended up changing my plan. I discovered that it is ok to split up miles occasionally as long as all the miles are in a 24 hour period. So I headed out at 5:45am yesterday and ran 8 beautiful, country miles in the most ideal temperatures! Came home, showered, napped, had a light dinner and went back out. I had been warned that I needed to be careful, so run #2 was a little slower, but another 8 miles. I went 10, 13, 16. That's a lot of miles!!! I feel amazing today!!! Other than tired, I'm not sore, thank those walk breaks!! I feel on top o the world! Ready for the taper!!
