The happenings of Week 7:
Monday: Rest Day (pool closed)
Tuesday: 4 mile run.
Wednesday: Rest Day (pool closed)
Thursday: 7 mile run. This was a fantastic run! One of those runs that you just don't ever want to stop.
Friday: I accidentally drank a bottle of Merlot and then went hot tubbing.
Sunday: 14 mile long run!
My long run this last week was 14 miles. Exactly 0.9 miles longer than the longest race I've ever ran. I did it on my treadmill as I am still too much of a pansy to run outside. The majority of our streets and sidewalks are either snow covered or glare ice. I'm unsure of how I feel about this run. I'm ecsatic that I did it, but it almost seemed like it was too easy. I found myself wondering what exactly I did for the first 9 miles. I recall getting to mile 7 and thinking that the first half of the run is always the hardest.
I walked a little and ran most. 14 miles in 2:25. I am happy with that. I felt that I could have kept going and that is my biggest achievement!
After my 14 miles were complete, I KNEW that I would be able to complete this marathon! I registered for the Woody's RV World Marathon as soon as I was finished. On May 26 2013, I will run a marathon.
Oh! I also got my first blister during my long run:
This part I did not like.
