Is this really week 7 already? Wow! Time sure flies.
Last week was just about a total bust. I only ran once, on Tuesday, and then I got hit with an allergy attack. I just felt off the rest of the week; off enough that I didn't do much of anything! I didn't run again until Monday this week.
My run on Monday, by the way, really sucked! My legs hurt, my feet hurt, my left hip hurt. I ran about the same distance and speed as normal, but it was really uncomfortable. In comparison, today's run ROCKED! I bought new shoes over the weekend and wore them tonight. I should have worn them on Monday (that was a big contributor to the quality of that run).
My distance run this week...gulp...is 8 miles. I'm a little nervous about that. I've never run that far before. But my nervousness aside, I WILL do that run. I'm not trying to beat any speed records, just go the distance. I think I know what route I'm going to run. I think I'll go back to the park I did my last long run at, and travel on the equestrian trail instead of the hike/bike trail. I've been on that trail before, and it's a nice run. I'll carry my phone so I'll try to get some good pictures for y'all.
Good night. I'll let you know how my run goes on Saturday.
