Hey Everyone (all 3 of you that read this)! I just ran 7 miles! I’m so proud of myself!
This morning I had a six mile run on the agenda from my training plan. I figured I would do the six miles and keep going it I felt up to it. When I reached six miles I thought I’d do a little more so I could do a 10k which is 6.21 miles. Once I reached that I figured I would just go to 7 miles since I was feeling so great. And I did it! I ran 7 miles! The furthest I have ever run! On a Treadmill!
That brings this week’s total miles up to 15.
This week’s training recap:
Tuesday: 4 miles- 10:02 Pace
Thursday: 4 miles- 9:38 pace
Saturday: 7 miles- 10:01 pace
After this run, I’m feeling pretty good about the 10 miler. I can’t wait for it!
Unfortunately most of my runs have been on the treadmill lately. The treadmill and I are becoming the best of frenemies. I wish I could run more outside, but since I do most of my workouts after work, it’s really dark and cold by then. This morning I was hoping to run outside, but I woke up to another winter wonderland. I did see one person out running today and I thought “yeah, he just looks insane.”
I started reading a new blog called Skinny Runner. At first I thought the title was
obnoxious, but I actually enjoy reading it, she’s pretty funny (especially her celebricizing page). She runs about one marathon a month. Who does that??? She even ran two marathons
in a single weekend before. At first I
thought that was just ridiculous, but whatever
floats your boat, right? Where some
people might think that’s a little excessive, I say more power to you, if your
body can handle it and you’re doing it safely.
I doubt I'll ever get to that point , but I think I’ll use her as inspiration. :)
