longest run ever, beach running, back in the game

Thursday the 12th I had my longest run ever at 14 miles.  I wasn't sore the next day and felt ok during the run.  We left for the beach that friday and I only ran 3 times while gone.  two 5 mile runs and a 4.  Not good.  But I'm back at it.  I ran 6 this morning and ready to get 30+ miles this week again and keep it going.  Doing 15 Saturday morning hopefully! :)  I am amazed at the human body, and how you can train it to get stronger so quickly.  I never thought I'd go out and do a 14 mile run... training run.  Crazy.  In a few weeks that will seem short... which is a scary thought. Or a cool thought.  I feel like a real runner.

I've been following my plan well.  For 2 weeks I only missed one run.  Ran 30 miles week before last, 20 last week.  Have 11 already this week.  I will have to run on vacation next week, so I'm sure I won't get all my miles in, but gonna try.  My friend met me this morning after I ran four, and helped me through the final 3 miles.  Ended up getting 7 and 1/2 in.  I am happy about it.  Haven't been able to sleep well at night and not sure what is up with that, but hoping it doesn't continue.

Good Early Run

I did it!  With the help of a friend, I got up at 5:30 and ran.  We had a good run too - for me, not really for her.  She is way faster than me but ran with me.  Got in a good tempo run 6 miles averaging 9:09.  I really like getting the run out of the way in the morning, but I am very tired today.

I may get up and run a local 4K on the 4th tomorrow.  Not sure yet though.  But maybe.  I'm suppose to do 3 miles so it would work out well.
