Last week I completed my longest run ever! 8 Miles! It was amazing! (Well, except for the side cramp I got during the last 3/4 mile.) When I finished the 8 miles I realized two things. The first and most exciting realization was that my goal of completing my first half marathon next month is very do-able!!! The second realization was that the ambulance I had just ran past a short time ago had followed me into the parking lot where I had parked my car and it made me think they must have thought I was in need of their services. LOL
And just in case you were losing sleep over my recent blog post about what I am going to wear when I go to Vegas, you can now sleep better knowing that I have all of my outfits planned out! I don’t want to ruin the surprise about my race outfit but I will tell you that it involves this and a couple pairs of these. (Hint: I am embarrassing my husband and channeling my inner Rainbow Brite. It’s Vegas, anything goes, right?) I am pretty certain the hubby will get over his embarrassment because I will be wearing this to the after party!
Ok, back to business.
Here is my plan for week #9 of training!
Sunday: 5 Mile Run
Monday: Insanity DVD
Tuesday: Rest Day / Election Day
Wednesday: 5 Mile Run & Strength Training
Thursday: 2 Mile Run
Friday: 10k run
Saturday: Stretch & Strengthen
As you can tell from my workout schedule, this is a recovery week. I get to back off the mileage a little and let my body re-coup so it is ready to take on a 9 mile long run on week #10!
