Week 2 went well. A few ups and downs.
How it went down:
Monday: Swimming day....sort of. I only did 25 lengths and then fell into the hot tub.
Tuesday: Awesome 3 mile!! Ran it in my fastest time yet. Legs were a bit sore, but I felt great!
Wednesday: Great swim! Went with a different friend and raced 30 lengths!
Thursday: The plan was 5 miles, was goal was 6, reality was 4. My knee wasn't feeling the greatest and I thought I best take it easy opposed to pushing myself for one more mile and not being able to do the long run.
Friday: Rest Day!
Saturday: 9 miles! Went well. Definitely need to look into energy gels and supplements. The first six miles were amazing. I was on fire! Daydreaming of the big day and the entire world cheering me on. And then I totally crashed. Mile 7 was BRUTAL. I jumped off the treadmill and rifled through my bag until I found a crappy, old energy gel. It was disgusting and I kind of wanted to spit it out all over the gym floor, BUT I kept it down and miles 8 and 9 were achievable!!
Looking forward to Week 3! (Mainly because the long run is only 6 miles.....)
