Tomorrow calls for my first 20 mile run and for some reason, just thinking about 20 miles of running scares me. Iknow this will be a good confidence builder for me, but 3:30 to 4 hours of running is alot. Especially since I won't be able to start it until 1:00 or so due to fmaily obligations, I say obligations, but my boys have a football game at 10 and I want to see it, so I run afterwards.
 
Run
  • 29m 22s
  • 3.07 miles
  • 09m 34s /Mi

This morning I had planned a short 3 mile run according to my plan, so last night my wife says,"why get up so early since it is short and will take less than 30 minutes?" That sounded like a great idea...

Never heard my alarm go off at all. Woke up to my son waking us up sayig he was going to be late for "Science club" So I scrambleout of bed and get him to school. By the time I come back it is pushing 7:45 and I can;t get into work that late, I do have some flexibility, but would feel weird coming in that late, so basically, I said all that to say this: Next time I stick to my original schedule of getting up. Now I will have to work in my run this evening at the boys football practice, so it won;t be all bad, but man, it started my day off all wrong!
 

Run
  • 49m 45s
  • 5.07 miles
  • 09m 49s /Mi
I so did not want to get up and run this morning, I could have slept in. Once I got upright, I knew I was going out. It was a beautiful morning, mid 50s. Felt good.
 

I feel pretty good today after yesterday. I did take an ice bath after my run, well not an "ice" bath, but a cold water bath. Maybe that is helping, who knows?
 
Run
  • 2h 18m 36s
  • 12.00 miles
  • 11m 32s /Mi
I ran all of the 12 miles except for maybe a 1/4 mile. It iwas a slow run, but these longer runs (16+) are really helping me with my confidence that I can do all 26.2. Thsi week is sort of a recovery week with my runs being 3-5-3 and then a 20 miler. I will definately have my first 100+ mile month ever!
