I have decided that when you are training for something like a race, the weeks just fly by. Really, they do. I feel like I just shared Week 8 with you and here I am ready to tell you about Week 9. Time passes so quickly.
So, Week 9! It was a good week. It brought with it a mid-week 5 miler which will continue through the end of my training. It also means the last single-digit long run on Sundays. I have to thank my wonderful hubby again for keeping me company on his bike this morning. I enjoy our time together and feel pretty special to have him looking out for me. He makes sure I drink water and he reminds me I can get over the last bridge when I am convinced I can’t. Thanks honey!
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – 3 miles
Thursday – 5 miles
Friday – 3 miles
Saturday – Cross training – walked around PSP World Cup at Fantasy of Flight with hubby
4.5 miles total (according to hubby’s FitBit)
Sunday – 9 miles
This morning’s run was hard, I’m not gonna lie. I woke up super tired, even going to be at 9 last night. I think being out in the 500 degree heat and sun yesterday as we walked around all day really wore me out. But I sucked it up and got out there this morning and gave it my best shot. I swore several times going over the Sand Key Bridge (a beast of a bridge) but finished strong. It was warm and humid out, which didn’t help. But, I did it and it’s done. 9 miles in the books this morning.
The rest of today will be a snooze-fest. It’s the first Sunday I’ll get to enjoy being home ALL day in a while and I will make the most of it. I’m going to read and nap and make pulled pork for dinner. And then nap some more. I think this is a good representation of how I feel…. Except it should say day of, not day after.
Total miles for Week 9, thanks to the added bonus of all the walking I did yesterday, is 24.53 miles.
I’m also excited because I FINALLY registered for the Women’s Half Marathon. You know, the one I’ve been training for? Yes, I just now registered for it. I need to win the lottery so I can register for all the races I want to do. Here’s the fabulous medal I’ll get to add to my collection…. It’s so Florida…
Do you enjoy long runs?
