This is so exciting. I honestly never thought I’d be able to run more than 4 miles.
- Mile 1: 12:05
- Mile 2: 12:29
- Mile 3: 12:17
- Mile 4: 12:10
- Mile 5: 12:35
- Mile 6: 12:23
- Mile 7: 13:16 (looooong traffic light!)
- Mile 8: 11:35!
I’m really encouraged that 1. I didn’t die and 2. I didn’t overdo it in the first four miles and 3. I survived the hills of DOOM! I figure if I can do my long runs on hills, I’ll survive Fredrick’s decently flat course for the half.
Drinking: Chocolate Cherry Protein shake – vanilla almond milk, 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, cherries and ice.
Soon to be: Rolling. With a rolling pin. Because I don’t own a foam roller.
Later, I’m going to a community yoga class with my friend Carmen at Flow Yoga. I love the studio so much, but a full membership is a little steep. So I take advantage of their free classes whenever I can! Hopefully my legs will hold up…
