Ran 19 this morning. Wowwie for me!

November 16th, 2008

My brain decided to wake me up at 4am because it knew I had to get up at 5am. Oh my goodness! I have to run WHAT?!!! The most miles I have ever run in a marathon training season was 16 due to shin splints. I was so proud of myself last week for running 17 miles. Today – I exceeded that.

Sure, my shins are KILLING ME! I also had to walk on 4 particularly nasty hills along the way. However, even with walking, I averaged 11:13/mi. Not bad. It was 34 degrees outside, but I still did it.

I RAN 19 MILES TODAY!!!! I definitely deserve a nap!

    Way to go, girl! I think more than a nap is deserved for that many miles. I admire you for sticking with it and having this great goal of running marathons. AWESOME, girl, keep it up!

    *blush* Thanks a bunch. My knees sure needed that 1.5 hour nap yesterday. Thankfully, I feel great today. I love Mondays. That is my BIG REST day after my long runs. Now for 50 miles in San Francisco. *Yikes!!*
