So I uhhhh… ran *cough* 70 miles *cough* this week.
Monday– What a gorgeous day! I knew it would be the last sunny day for a long time so Lora and I made the best of it by doing a longer run together in the late afternoon. We did the same route as yesterday but at a bit faster pace of 8 min/miles for 12.5 miles. So fun!
Tuesday– I ran 5 miles early this morning on the treadmill and then I was able to meet Lora this evening for a quick 6 miler!
Wednesday– I ran 7 9 min/miles on the treadmill this morning and then 4 8 min/miles tonight at 10ppm for 11 total miles for the day.
Thursday– I ran 3-plus warm-up miles on the treadmill, then did 8 min hard at 7 min/miles, 4 min easy at 8 min/miles, 6 hard, 3 easy, 4 hard, 2 easy, 2 hard, 1 easy, 1 hard and then 3 miles cool down to make 11 total treadmill miles.
Friday– This was probably the longest stroller run I’ve done to date. I ran 3 miles on the treadmill and then headed out with Callum for 4 miles but he fell asleep right before we got home so I kept going for another 5 miles for 12 total.
Saturday– Rest Day.
Have you gotten over the fact that I took a rest day? Me neither.
Sunday– Race Day!!!
Andrew and I ran the half marathon in a
little lot over 2 hours, but we survived. It was such a cool experience. The weather was gorgeous, the course was smooth, well-marked and well-supported. I started getting some braxton hicks at around mile 10-11, but we straggled in and dumped our bodies into the cab and booked it back to our hotel in time to get ready for the baseball game.
I’m asking Andrew to ask you guys the questions this week. He wants to know:
Do you wash your hands after you go poo? Because while I waited in line for the toilets, all the guys who audibly went number two, walked out of the washrooms without washing their hands.
How do you soothe a sunburn? On your bum?
