|Check out my Cool Bib!|
Went for my long run this morning. Got up at 6 am to try to beat the heat.
Not early enough. :(
Miles I ran: 11
Time it took: longer then I wanted but still at faster pace then my first half but slower then last 2 long runs of 9 and 10 miles.
Walking breaks: Too many.
Temperature: Way too hot...about 86
Times I said really bad words like Calisse, Criss or Tabarnac (Anne so sorry I know these are very bad) to bikers who almost hit me: TWICE and I am not sorry about that!
Times I wanted to quit and call Bill: ONCE but I didn't.
Number of squirrel I saw: 1
Side pain: Yep one that lasted about 3 miles.
Number of salt tablets: 2 before I left and 2 after 1 hour: not enough.
I was under my first half marathon pace but slower then my last 2 long runs so I am a little discouraged with this one.
This was a hard one for me.
At times my legs felt really heavy. I am glad today was NOT race day.
This is me after I got back, I am smiling because it is OVER. 11 done, 15.2 to go!
Last week I had pain in my knees after my 10 miles, did not want that again so I decided to go for the ice bath for the first time. I hope this will helps. That was not fun, aouch!
My kids thought it was hilarious that I was taking a bath with ICE in it and that I had clothes on!!! Cannot see the ice really good on the picture, but there was some!!! I added another bag after that was taken.
Warning: gross picture coming up
My toe is hurting....it is as ugly as my run today
That white part of the nail is about to fall, it is broken.
So there you have it, The Ugly Truth is not all runs go well. Today it sucked.
Boston runners if you are reading this: GOOD LUCK!!! ENJOY!!!
100 FOLLOERS!!!! Julie is #100! thank you all!!
