Running Update

12:33 PM

So have you gotten over the news that I am going to willingly run 13 miles? I have not. But that hasn't stopped me from working on my weekly training. I'm four weeks into my training plan. I have nine weeks left. 

Two of my recent milestones were running five miles last week, then six miles Sunday. Oh my goodness. 
I'm so glad that I've got a group of friends to run with. Wait, I wouldn't be in this situation if it was not for them, but I digress. The last two weekends we've meet early Sunday morning for long runs. If you are training or ever plan to, run with other people. I could not do it alone. For example, I was tired and wanted to quit between miles four and five. My running partner, Coop, would not let me stop. I didn't really want to give up, but my mind was beating me up. With her encouragement, I pushed through and finished the six miles. Whew.

I love my new running shoes. I wasn't really sure if they'd make that big of a difference. But I've noticed that I don't think about my feet at all while I'm running. Exactly what they are designed to do. So that hefty price tag just might be worth it.

I still have many hurdles to jump - like miles 7, 8 and 9. But it's okay. I'm taking it one week at a time. 

I'll keep up the running (and sweating!) and post updates as I progress.
