This week was crazy busy for me and I thought I may not be able to get in the miles I wanted to, but with the help of my alarm clock I got up and got it done!
Rest day, I did however play volleyball with my church league!
3 Miles through town, turkey's eyed me up again and one even flew to catch up to me. For some reason I am terrified of them now....maybe I should see someone about this phobia...
Another Rest day, worked a double 9-9.
4 Miles, I felt strong and got it done.
Rest day, another double 9-9. But, I was dog sitting for my best friend Calley's parents and the have 9 labs, yes NINE, they are breeders....this is my dream job. I got so many puppy kisses I almost fainted.
|How cute are they!?|
8 miles. 8 wonderful, beautiful, strong, happy miles.
This is the longest distance I've run in close to a decade! It felt great! I brought along a chocolate gu(loved it, review soon), and there were water fountains along my route. I kept a great pace and it didn't feel too hard. I also decided to push myself and run my last mile the fastest in preparation for my race next week. Success, If you ever feel nervous about running a new distance, just do it! I felt so strong and confident afterwards!
|I haven't mastered the running selfie yet...tips?|
3 miles. I needed them, I found out some very sad news and the old me would have curled up and taken a 3 hour nap after crying and eating gummy worms....but today I needed to run. I needed to hear my feet hitting the ground. I needed my mind to clear, and that's what happened. I prayed that whole run and came home myself again. Funny how that works, huh?
Mileage: 18 !!!!!!!!!! Yes!
My race is a week from today and I set 2 goals, 1. each mile under 8:30 2. if 1 isn't happening, just have fun and finish with a smile!
How was your week?
Do you cross-train?
Are you also afraid of turkey's? Am I the only one?
