More Than Half Way There!
Today I ran my longest distance ever....14.7 miles, baby!!!! Oh yeah! It was cool out, but I've been through enough of winter to know how to layer properly for it. I have been itching to do a half-marathon, however, the one I wanted to do happens to fall on the day of my dear co-workers baby shower so in the absence of any kind of race available to me locally, I decided to set my Nike+iPod to "half-marathon" & conquer the distance. Did you know that you can't listen to more than one podcast while running in Nike+ mode? Well, you can't. If you try to switch to another it ends your workout. Oh crap. Had to reset. Anyway, combined mileage adds up to 14.7 miles. No speed record...but that's ok. I will admit that the last mile uphill really, REALLY sucked. Holy crap it hurt! A friend asked if I was training for a spring marathon. OMG! I can't even imagine 12 more miles on top of what I did. Will I be able to actually do that in even 6 months? I'm having serious doubt here folks...what got you over that psychological/physical hurdle?
