Ran on TM -
A new TM distance record for me
When you get up at 5am and start the day by being all bossypants and commanding people around, you better put up or shut up.
So I did my long run on the treadmill. Thank you, Heavenly Father for the excessive amount of Emmy coverage this morning.
That’s really the only thing I worry about – getting the long runs in. I figure the speed will come around eventually, but it’s a whole other level of hurt when you’re not prepared for the distance. That’s why I love running back-to-back marathons: at least you know you can finish. And you don’t have to do long runs! The race is the long run.
Anyways, the run looked like this:
65 mins/8.35 miles – the treadmill goes up to 60 minutes and then 5 more for a “cool down”.
25 mins/3.25 miles – after this, I filled my water bottle and changed into dry clothes since I was soaking wet and getting the wet-short-creep going on. Ate a gel.
65 mins/8.3 miles – same thing as the first hour but paused at 30 minutes to refill my water bottle again and take another gel.
1 min/.1 – finished with 20 exactly for an average pace of 7:48.
And then I came home and had just a smidge of salt…
The Garmin giveaway will be up this afternoon so check back this afternoon!
