I have been a terrible blogger. And a terrible blog reader. I haven't had a day off since last Saturday and I've been filling the time doing everything away from the laptop. In fact, I just realized tonight that it probably has been almost a week since I have looked at the interwebs from an actual computer and not just my phone. Doh!
But the good news is that I have been running. And making some major life decisions. The life decisions will be for another post, but soon, I promise! As for the running, I definitely feel great after today's random 13.5 miler.
actually took advantage of the cooler (re: low 80's) temperatures and
headed outside to the Greenway this morning. I contemplated going the
first time I woke up at 6am, but decided to
sleep another couple hours and go when it was light out. Yes, I am one
of those annoying people that can pretty much fall asleep anytime,
I wore my sexy fanny pack/water bottle holster and that was a smart decision. After each gulp throughout my run, I actually managed to feel the residual effects for at least a few tenths of a mile. Cool.
The last 3 miles were kind of iffy. My feet were sore, I was hot, and I felt like I was done sorting out my thoughts. But I dug deep and managed to power through those final miles. Plus, I did this cheesy thing where I was
imagining various Loopsters waiting for me to high five them as I ran
by. It gave me some sort of accountability knowing that someone was
waiting for me to pass them by. Probably sounds a slightly bananas, but
you know, whatever gets you through the long run...
