You thought I was crazy before……just wait.
I set out at 6:39 a.m. for a long, easy pace run. I have properly carb loaded with cinnamon rolls and skittles for the last four days so I was set to go.
+Sea Level elevation (I am used to running in Mountain Goat habitats)
+Lots of happy things to think about
+All the free time in the world
+Temps in the 50’s
+New running gear from Christmas
+A new course I have never run before with plenty of hills and a gorgeous view of the ocean.
=28 miles in 3:49:29
I was just going to run to the ocean and have Billy pick me up but once I got there I felt like a million bucks and had to challenge myself.
There were rolling hills the entire run and I am pretty sure this was a great training run for Boston. A total of 3102 feet of climbing uphill and 3092 feet downhill.
Rest day yesterday and at least two rest days after day.
Currently typing this from my ice bath. I asked Billy to come take a picture of me in my ice bath but something about modesty and the fact I look like I have been ran over by a truck…we decided against it.
Off to Big Bear to hang with the grandparents.
I will be reading all of your blogs from my iphone. I can’t comment but know that I am commenting in my head and loving every second of it.
Keep in mind my ridiculous mileage has nothing to do with losing weights. I am actually trying to gain a few lbs by eating ridiculous amounts of calories (like at least 3,000 a day)
****I am doing this because I will have a sub 3 hour marathon and you may even see me in the Olympics some day.
When and where was the most beautiful run you have ever had?
-I am going to have to say today’s wins.
What is your most memorable running/exercise/fitness accomplishment?
-My last marathon…. and today for the distance:)
If you could choose to be anywhere in the entire world right this second….where would it be?
