I was actually looking forward to my run today. It's been exactly a week since my last run and I was starting to get a little stir crazy. The only part I was worried about was running 12 miles after working for 8 hours. No, biggie...right?
I drank a soda on the way home to get a little extra caffeine. I also soaked my feet in some epsom salt for about 20 minutes to soothe them a little. I got dressed, filled my bottle with Gatorade, grabbed my phone, and took off. It was a beautiful day for a run.
We have run 12 before and agreed to do the same route again. I like it, because we run by the Lighthouse and have some awesome views of the Lake.
The first four miles passed pretty quickly. I haven't talked to Becky in a week and we had a lot of catching up to do. I felt pretty good until mile 9. My legs started to get really tight and my feet were starting to get a bit sore. Miles 9-11 seemed to drag on forever.
I couldn't wait to run the last mile. There's a huge hill we get to run down before the home stretch. The only problem with that was that a
When we were walking to cool down, I stopped to pull the rock out and I had a bloody heel. Ouchie!
It was a good run and the fastest 12 miles I've done, even with walking a few times. Hopefully I can make my goal of a 2:30 half marathon next weekend!
I hope all of you moms had the day that you deserve!
