Since I am running a 5k on Sunday (with Positive A, mt BIL Danny, his GF Rossilyn and my friend Casey), I wanted to make sure that my long run got done. So, I ran it today instead! This weeks long run was 5 miles. I wasn't sure that I could do it, but I tried...and made it. It took me 1 hour to do it, but I am ok with that!
I tired out quicker today than in the past few days. I took a walk break at mile 3, another at mile 4, and then it was downhill from there. That last mile was a KILLER. I sprinted the last 1/4 mile, but I was soooo happy when I was done.
My shirt was drenched, my hair looked like I had dunked it into a bucket of water and my legs ached...but my spirits were high knowing that I had run my furthest distance. And then I thought...how the HELL am I going to run 13 of these?
I'll post about the race on Sunday!
