I was planning on running 20 miles today but I also always love to get a 22 miler under my belt when training for a marathon. When I hit 20 miles this morning I still felt pretty good and decided that 22.1 would be a fun way to end. 8:20 average pace (but we always pause our gamins for drink breaks/lights/random breaks).
This is our favorite drinking fountain in the world. I don’t know what it is about this water but it is so incredibly refreshing.
Blurry pic but it shows that fall is here.
I have missed my training partners so much and so I loved spending the morning with them. As we passed a flag that was at half-staff we talked about where we were and how we felt on September 11th. Never Forget.
And the best reward after a long run.
Today’s run was definitely a confidence booster for my upcoming marathon. This has been an extremely short training cycle and I have been worried about not having enough endurance built up by race day but after today, I feel real good about it all.
You know you had a good day together when you have four stamps and a sticker from all of your activities.
I don’t want her to leave tomorrow but I am just going to have to put on my big girl panties and be okay with it.
Had a huge breakfast when I got home from my run and then I was craving a bowl of nutrients (and a cookie) for lunch. Winner:
So my friend (the one I always trail run with) just found out she has to have surgery. She has lateral compression syndrome with chondrosis and so they have to go in and clean up the meniscus. They may also have to stretch out the tendon too…
I wanted to ask you guys if any of you have had this before? How did it go? How was recovery? How is your running now?
Ever had surgery on anything?
Do you pause your garmin when you take a water break/stop lights etc?
