18 miles were accomplished yesterday morning.
Probably not my best idea for us to do the first mile straight uphill. I guess it is good training to run the last 17 miles of my long run on tired legs from climbing a mountain at the very start!?
Jess came and did the first 8 with me on the trails (PS if you are wanting to make your long runs more interesting ((and easier on your joints)), try doing part of them on the trails and then finish up on the roads).
After Jess went home I did 5 miles on my own and made sure to stop at my favorite grocery store for their perfect drinking fountains and clean restrooms. Their water is the perfect temperature and none of the employees at this particular store ever give me a weird look when I walk in sweaty and bright red.
Bless Candice’s heart for getting me through the last five miles of my run (she did 20 yesterday)!!!! It was getting pretty warm by the time I finished and I stopped exactly at 18.00 miles because I was ready to be done. 42 days until the marathon!!! I am a little bit worried about that.
After I finished we sat in the pool for a long time and ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
And once dinner time rolled around we all went to the food truck round-up.
Green Me was the winner. Like usual.
Brooke and I tried the peach one for the first time and loved it. I am still amazed that they are able to fit so many greens into each smoothie…
It started to get really windy outside and so we decided to go up the road to In-N-Out for dinner so that we could eat inside. Salty french fries are kind of a requirement after a long run.
My sis and her husband came over to my place and we watched Sherlock to end the day. Just add that to the list of shows that I am addicted to.
For marathon training, what is usually the longest run that you do? What about for half-marathon training?
What is your long run or workout this weekend?
Favorite place to get french fries?
