Good morning! Wow I am tired today. Yesterday Bobby and I ran a 13.1 mile training run for the Dumbo Double Dare we have coming up, and we both feel like we are falling apart! (WHY did I sign up for DOPEY again?!?)
I see it in her eyes. She knows Dopey personally, and thinks I’m crazy for attempting his race.
We spent the afternoon resting and recovering, and I am so glad our longest run (for now) is behind us. Bobby was upset that we ran a half marathon but didn’t get a medal. He threatened to walk around all day wearing one of his old half marathon medals. Oh boy.
Here is what I did the rest of the week:
Sunday: 6 mile run
Monday: 45 minutes elliptical, abs
Tuesday: 4 miles in 40 minutes on the TM
Thursday: 2 mile run outside
Friday: upper body weights, 20 minutes stationary bike
Saturday: 13.1 mile run in 2:20 (half outside, half on TM)
Very productive week, and now I am going to start slowly tapering for Dumbo. I will probably do a long run of 7 or 8 next weekend, then maybe 5 or 6 the following, we will see how I am feeling. I would much rather feel fresh and not so injured then get in more miles.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
QOTD: What is the longest distance you run when training for a half marathon?
