Well, week 9 is over. It was a pretty good week.
On Monday, my weekly short run was fun.
There was a torrential downpour on Wednesday, so I ran on the treadmill. I did a 7 mile tempo run. It was super boring.
You will be so proud. On Thursday and Friday, I completed a cross training workout video. It is pretty much a all body workout with some plyo moves thrown in for fun.
I normally complete my long run on Saturday, but I was not mentally engaged. I put on my running clothes, but I did not want to run, so I postponed it until Sunday. After church, I ran. It was pretty good. My hip started bugging me and I got behind on calories around mile 11 and I wanted to quit. I stretched, ate double, kept running, and everything worked out. I ran 18 really slow miles. I am kind of embarrassed at how slow I was, but hey, I kept running.
You know, I have always had a problem with 18 mile runs. I would rather run 16 or 20. I don’t know what it is about 18 miles that psychs me out, but I need to get over it…
