10.5 miles in the bank today on the treadmill. Lucky me, I was able to run straight with Bill’s mom watching the baby while I ran. I went up and kept checking on him every so often. It was kind of nice though, because Bill and his dad went to the Villanova game and I really had no excuse not to run being left home with just Bill’s mom and a sleeping baby! I went through 2 GUs but man, GU just does not have the same appeal as it did when I was pregnant.
10.5 miles/1:38:40/9:22 pace
This run felt good. I felt like the second GU really kicked in towards the end so I pumped up the pace and did the last mile at 7.0mph which felt good, but I think my body may be a bit sore tomorrow. But it was a confidence builder. I’ll attempt a few more miles next week. I’m a little nervous of 15+ miles – trying to get outside for these but not going to think about that yet. I wonder how little of a long run I can do and still feel fine @ Boston. 18? I think its all a mindset but I do want to make sure I’m prepared.
I have to think of better recovery foods, I just eat veggie burgers and powerbars.
I’m trying to make it a bit over 30 miles for the week and feel pretty good. So far I have 28.6 miles completed (2 fun ones with BOB!)
