11 Miler Is In the Books!

I did it!  My longest run ever!

And I must say, I am feeling it!  Yesterday when I finished, I stretched.  Apparently, though, I didn't stretch enough because I stiffened up pretty bad.  The left hip is much better today, but the back of the right knee is still pretty sore.  I'm thinking I won't be running again tomorrow.  Maybe on Thursday; we'll see how it feels.  And today my quads are starting to get a little sore, as well.  Yeah, I can tell I did a long run yesterday!

Average pace for the run - 14:33
Calories burned - 916

I can't lie; I treated myself to a Whopper Jr. (with cheese) for lunch.  And it was good!  All is not lost, though; I had a side salad to go with it, and water to drink.

Only 2 more long runs left on the training schedule:
March 3:  12.5 miles
March 17:  14 miles

Have a great night!

5K Tomorrow (2/11/2012)

5K tomorrow...with the hubster!  Really looking forward to our first "together" running event.  Of course, he's much taller and faster than I am, so we won't run together for very long, I'm sure.  But it will be fun.

You Know It's a Good Run When...

1.  Aaaahhh! said the brain
2.  EVERYTHING moves!
3.  But not until after you're done and home again...

Whew!  It's been a tough week and probably not going to get much better.  The beginning of next week promises to be just as tough.  It's that time of the month at work again.

I did a 3 miler on Saturday.  (Sorry, no pics this time.  Didn't carry my phone.)  The hubs came, too.  It's amazing how satisfying it is to run with him...even though we don't really run together.I guess it's that whole shared experience thing...

I haven't gotten to run since, until tonight, for one reason or another.  So I made sure to get one in tonight since I actually got to leave the office on time.  This Saturday is a 9.5 mile run.  I'll take my phone with me this time, especially since the hubs will do his own distance and then go home.

Until then...
