Run and Remember
I began this Day of Remembrance by doing my weekly long run for marathon training. The inaugural STL Rock N Roll Marathon is October 23…eeek it’s NEXT MONTH!
Since I am way off my training schedule, I was kind of undecided as to how far I would run today. I did 18 miles the day my ankle tendonitis started, but that was 4 weeks ago and since then I’ve been focused on recovering and not doing too much so I’m wayyy off my training plan.
So when I saw my sis-in-law, Kristy, running her 10 in prep for the RNR Half (Go K!!) and she asked how far I was going, I had no idea…just whatever felt good.
I was so excited that my ankle did great, my blister is completely healed and didn’t give me any fits, and I felt amazing for a half-marathon! Yep, that’s right, 13.1 miles this morning in 2:01:58!!
Amazing runner’s high today!
And a voracious appetite! <----But no food in the house makes this not a good thing. Must.go.grocery.shopping. Ugh.
I came home after my run and iced my foot, and caught up on Twitter and Facebook while I was waiting for the 20 minute timer to go off. It seems to take HOURS for those 20 minutes to pass.
Oh, and that’s Kinesio Tape on my foot. I got some last week in hopes that I can use it to support my ankle instead of wear that darned brace. So far so good!
Right now, I am getting my mind set for another busy week ahead:
- Basketball practices (x5)
- Cross Country Meet
- Baseball games (x2)
And those are just the extracurriculars. Whew!
WE WILL NEVER FORGET.
