I had a long run today. Sunday is my long run day.
Last week I ran just under 16 miles so this week it was 18.
Shaughnessy had a half marathon so I thought… hey now…why not?
We ran the Louisville Half Marathon (I’ll put a review up tomorrow….it was an experience in confusion).
The grand plan was to run the half and then kiss Shaughnessy goodbye as I took off for another five miles.
Well…the heavens did not agree. It was about 50* and chilly already (I ran the whole way in my arm warmers ~thanks Mom!) and at the end as we headed to her car oh my gosh. Pouring, torrential~ could there BE any more rain?~ Rain.
And it was cold.
So I opted to go home and run it on the treadmill. I get it. Not the most optimal situation and it pretty much negates the endurance part of the endurance run. But I got 18 miles in and it wasn’t even hard. It had it’s moments for sure. But mostly I did okay.
I’m WAY less sore than I was last week…
Shaughnessy kicked ass. Girl is strong. At mile 12 I told her to go ahead of me and she flew. She finished a full minute ahead of me.
Sean took me out for a steak because I was starving for protein. STARVING…
Ruby Tuesday has the best steak and grilled Zucchini I could die it’s so good.
Also, I opted to not use punctuation at all in that sentence. It feels more rebellious, like the rest of my day.
Yep. That’s right folks. No migraine. Can I get a What What?
I’m pretty happy about that. #understatementoftheweek
