Training-week 10

15 miles, NO PROBLEM


Yep, that's what I thought when I was at mile 2 into my 15 mile run today. I decided to run 5 laps around Fresh Pond, which was a blessing beyond belief. I took an entire bag of gummy bears and a full water bottle. There was SO MUCH sweat! Half way through my first lap of the pond I realized I would have to stop at the Conservation Center and refill. So I did. EVERY SINGLE TIME I PASSED IT! That's right. I ran 15 miles and consumed over 120 ounces of H2O. With all this hydration, I had to make a pee stop at the Center 4 out of the 5 times I was there. But I can honestly say, "This was a great run!" It was the farthest I have ever run. I did it in less time than I was planning (11 minute average pace). I love my gummy bears (I ate the whole bag). I know I'll hit "the wall" at some point on these long runs, but until then... I will LOVE every minute of them.

And as a reward, I got a much needed and deserved "posh pedicure".
