Thought I'd get back out there and finish up my week on a much more positive note. 6.5 miles yesterday. 6.5. It wasn't until about mile 5 that I realized that 6.5 would be my longest run....ever. I then started to reflect on how I got started running and all of the trials and tribulations that have gone with it.
It was a good run. I got to decompress after a crappy week. The first week back from break is tough. I don't know who hates it more: the kids or the teachers.
How do I celebrate my longest run to date? By treating myself to one of these:
Yep, the Elvis sandwich. Follow me on this:
-Whole wheat bread (grains)
-Turkey bacon (protein)
-Peanut Butter (more protein)
That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.
Other random thoughts:
-I need to get this guy back outside for a run. This is my dog, Maxfli. He's a really great dog, but he gets a little too excited when it comes to running. Last year, I used to take him out for 3-4 mile runs, but I think I overdid it and got an injury (ITBS). Max only knows 2 speeds: the one you see in the picture and then a dead-ass sprint. I think if I can devise a 2 mile route for us, I'll be fine. He's a good dog and he deserves it!
-I'm trying to organize a running group at school. Listening to my iPod is great on long runs, but I have a feeling that my motivation will soon wane on my way to training for the HM. I've never run with someone else, so it should be interesting. 4pm Tuesday is when we take off. Don't know if I should've set a distance or not.
