Morning! I just finished a yoga podcast, which I needed. I woke up feeling stiff this morning from running 12 miles yesterday.
Yes, 12 miles. I can’t believe that I did that yesterday. Over the past 2 months, we’ve been slowly adding mileage to our runs and the biggest struggle we’ve had is finding the time to run all that way. It takes up a lot of time! But besides the time factor, we’ve been doing a pretty good job of making it somewhat painless. Yesterday was kind of tough for me, my head wasn’t in it and my stomach wasn’t 100%, but finally at mile 10 I hit a groove. I was about to finish 12 miles, my longest distance ever and I should be proud.
Back in high school I used to DREAD running 1 mile around the track for the physical fitness test, never did I think I would be training for a half. Isn’t it funny how things change?
After our run we made a recovery smoothie (more on that sometime this week) and headed into the city. I wanted to feel like a “real” person and not just a boring old teacher. I miss going into the city every week.
Then it was off to Liquiteria where we all got different types of juices. I got beet, pear, apple and lemon. Delish.
Okay I’m super late! I’ll leave you with a nice quote from Dave Farmar this morning… “Shine out love and gratitude”.
Hi to all my new readers! Hope you had a great weekend!
