I do not have much time to type on here because I am going to be so busy today. This past Saturday I was able to run 10 miles. Yes, I said it, 10 MILES!!! I have never ran that much in my entire life. Maybe over the time span of a week or so while I was in athletics, but never on my own!
I started out running 2.5 miles away from my house and then did 2.5 miles back. That gave me a total of 5 miles. When I got back to my house I refueled my body with water, gatorade, and some GU chomps (my new favorite energy supplement).
After I refueled my body, I went back out for another 2.5 miles out and in. I was able to run most of it pretty well, but I did have to walk some because my knees would get the better of me at times. The roads that I run on are not flat at all and are very bumpy, which is good, because the race that I am training for has worse streets then that.
At the 9th mile, this is what I was looking at...
Did I make it back home you ask?
YES!! I did it. My longest mileage yet!! I am so excited about this.
In a couple of weeks I was informed by my schedule, that I have to run 12 miles. I am not even sure where I am going to run to get 12 miles done! I am still trying to figure that at.
It should make for an interesting run though!
