Yup. I had planned on it, but bailed more worried about rain. Just ran 10 this morning instead. But when I opened door and headed out at 5:45, I was surprised by no threat of rain yet oppressive humidity.

Mad props for getting that done.

(Side note, wasn't all thrilled with that medal. I decided to save the effort for Wine & Dine in a few weeks.)

It was ugly, but I did it. Medal actually looks pretty cool in person, especially for a small race. Wine and Dine will be much fancier.

I pushed my training and made this a back to back run weekend. Seven mile run on Friday, 15 yesterday. I did the 7 early and it was pretty cold, about 34 degrees. I was able to go a little later in the morning yesterday so it was a little warmer. My legs were tired in the beginning but I stayed slow, stuck to my 2:1 and was able to push through.

I think this was more about mental training than physical. I mean, the physical was still there obviously but I had to do 3 loops of 5-ish miles so seeing the same thing over and over got to be a bore. Plus as I stopped at my car for water and gels and stuff, I could have got it and said, eh, I've done enough.
But I had to push through the tired, pain and boredom. I'm a little stiff this morning, mostly ankles. My calves will probably feel it later. I'll just keep popping the Advil liqui-gels.

I agree - it's a mind game for the most part. Push past that and you'll be surprised what the body is able and willing to do for you.

Totally agree with the mental aspect. At mile 5 today, boredom set in. My music mix is getting old to me. I started doing math in my head. Let me just say, I hate math and am horrible at it, but it kept me going and I made it over that mental bump. (I was subtracting numbers from 100 all the way back to 0)

About mile 7 I saw our cat that had run away and I thought was long passed on. Made me happy to know that she rehomed herself and I thought about that for a good bit of the run. The last mile was brutal. But that was the last mile. I swear my hips quit moving when I see my house!

Thanks! I was trying to push so I could see DD's soccer game but I didn't make it because of the traffic getting out.

Now I have the Rock n Roll 10k on Saturday. How do I build back up for that?

Shoe question- So I went from the Nike Frees (I think 4mm drop) to the New Balance Minimus (zero drop). I had my first run two days ago in them and went 4 miles. It felt great at the time of running but my left foot and leg is really aching. Is this common when transitioning? Also I usually run on concrete and I ran on something different. Not sure how to describe it; we were vacationing in Williambsburg Va and I ran through the historical part of town. It's like tiny pebbles in concrete maybe? I thought maybe that made it worse. Anyhow, the view was gorgeous but horse poop- not so much

Congrats Shaelee!
I also PR'd my half this morning. Waiting for Official Time but Garmin time was 2:28:54. My previous PR was 2:36:41 so almost 8 minutes faster. Very pleased!

Gee...that's a great question. Maybe do a small 2-3 mile mid week?
I am impressed with all the races you are doing! Are these in prep for the Disney or do you just enjoy racing? I have not done a race in two years and decided to do a 10k next month just to get in a corral. I didn't realize how nervous I was until I signed up. I used to race all the time and doing the Disney was an after thought but always on my bucket list. I am only doing the half because at 44 I don't think I have a full in me anymore!
