Keeps going and going and going...till Monday! I was totally exhausted yesterday! Even a high energy person like me can burn out and I was flaming yesterday! I guess the two weddings and high energy expenditure on Sunday all caught up with me, so I rested.
Felt better today. I was well hydrated, fueled, and better rested so I decided to run at least three hours. I am really encouraged, even though the times don't look so great I am considering the course. Hilly! Big hills, short hills, steep hills, long hills. Did I say hills?
Guess what? I have decided that my last 20 miler will be done on the track! Crazy, huh? At least it's flat! I know it gets tedious but I need to run some quality miles on the flats.
Anyway, I started slow and just kept an easy conversation pace. At mile 14 I decided to kick it up and I ran a 9:19, and a 9:49. I felt gooood! The heel is still there but not as bad. I'm icing now. Truth is I think I could of gone a bit further but this still classifies as a long run.
Totals-17.0 miles/ 3:05:59/ 10:56's.
I may not get to fifty this week because of taking yesterday off but I am looking to get as many miles as I can. Then next week I must race! I need to see where I am.
On another note, I am going to a Leadership Conference in Vista California October 12th, and 13th. This is near Carlsbad, and North of San Diego. I am excited about running along the Pacific!
