I ran my last long run before the marathon yesterday. I was able to run 22 miles, and it felt AWESOME. I was surprised how good I felt. I really think I could have kept going, but already got a late start, so by the time I finished, it was already 11:30. The marathon is Oct 18Th in Louisville. The hubs and I will also be celebrating our 12Th anniversary that weekend. I know he would rather be hunting (opening day of Muzzle loader is the 17Th) be he is so good to me and knows I am itching to run another marathon. This will make for #11. I am already trying to decide where/when #12 will be.
Congrats to all those who ran/finished the St George Marathon on Sat.
So I got in the pool and swam laps on Friday for the first time in 2 1/2 years. It felt GREAT, and I was able to swim nearly 3/4 of a mile. Can't wait to get back in the water, maybe tomorrow.
My new side challenges for this week on my FBF are #1 Eat at least 3 FRESH fruits and veggies a day. (remember we are required to eat at least 5 f/v a day, but this they need to be fresh, no juice replacements, no applesauce etc etc) not a problem for me.
#2 is to pick my own indulgence and kick it for the week. I have decided to give up chips, and bread. The no bread will be a toughie for me. I know I can do it, it's only 7 days.
Have a great day.
