Yesterday the goal for my long run was 14 miles. I did it!! My toes felt A LOT better in my new shoes but were still a little sore. Next week is our last SUPER long run of 18-20 miles and then we go to 12 miles and then 8 miles the Saturday before the marathon. It is coming up quickly and, honestly, I can't wait for it to be over. I am excited to achieve such a goal but I am ready to go back to regular working out. These long runs on Saturdays are a big commitment and we also have to pay a babysitter for the 3 or 4 hours that we are gone, too.
Okay, I need to leave a great tip that I have learned the hard way. DO NOT EAT HALF A WATERMELON the night before a long run!!! My stomach was very upset the last half of my run and ALL day yesterday. Wow! I didn't realize that would do that but it did.
Hope you all have a great day!!!
