Marathon training is HARD!!!
I’m serious (not that I imagine you thought otherwise), these training days are seriously testing my body’s and mind’s capabilities. I know it will make me better when the big day finally arrives but, seriously????
I ran 10 miles today; only to ready myself for EIGHTEEN miles tomorrow!!! EIGHTEEN!!! (Do you like the written form in order to stress the number?) I have never run 18 miles. Ever….(getting back together)…sorry!
Anyway, as far as the longest I’ve ever run; I’d have to say LAST SATURDAY, with SIXTEEN MILES!!!! It’s amazing how our bodies can adapt. I’ve been training for a few months already and have been feeling better adapting to the increase in mileage; but my hubby literally freaked out when he found out I was going to run SIXTEEN MILES by myself last week! (my running partner and I had busy schedules that weekend)
Not that I blame him, in the least. Is it crazy? You bet!! Am I a bit crazy? Well, I can’t single myself out since MILLIONS of peeps run marathons every year. (and I didn’t even look up that number but I’m sure that it’s close enough). Although, aside from this training; yes, I might just be a little bit cray!!!
At least I can eat more CARBS!!!!!! 🙂
