Long run day

Oh my goodness, just read my letter to me and either my 2014 me was very ambitious in 2013 or she forgot to proof read her letter. I really don’t think it is my intent to run three half marathons on one summer (holy cow). I want to run one of those three 🙂

Today was long run day on the schedule. 10 Kms using 2 x 1 intervals. At about 8.5 Kms my left knee started to pain so I walked the final bit. It took about 4 Kms to get the negative thoughts out of my head and realize that I am strong and can do this. No shin splints (cross training on the elliptical is helping) and a lot less jiggle around the mid section thanks to the January fab-abs challenge and the loss of 12 lbs. I did the 10 km in 90 minutes.

It felt great to be outside in just a light sweater. Living in SW Ontario we usually have snow this time of year, however today it was about +8 degrees and all the snow has melted over the last couple of days.

A big thanks to my husband who gave the push to get out the door today. He came home and said “get your gear on and get out the door before it starts to rain again”. My goal is to never say no when these opportunities and encouragements come my way.

I have one day to make up on the fab abs schedule so will get that in this afternoon 🙂 and I will be up to date with the training schedules.
Here is to another great week towards a strong and healthy me.
