Seven Down, Two to Go!
Alright, we’ve come quite a ways! Exact opposite of the last post, actually.
The last post was about the Martian Marathon 10k, and after that came the Trails’ End 5 miler at Pinckney Rec Area, the Capital City Half Marathon, Back to the Beach 10k at Stoney Creek Metropark, and lastly the Flirt with Dirt 10k.
I’m not going to write about each, but here are a few pictures.
Now that it is less than four months until the Free Press full marathon, I am in training mode. Sort of. The runs are planned out and I’m doing them (except all of today’s run…) but it just doesn’t feel real, like the other times I trained for both half marathons. I get really nervous that my body just won’t be able to run that far, and I don’t like to fail.
Today was supposed to be my LSD run for 9 miles. I only got to 6 miles and had Tim come and pick me up. My legs/calves just hurt so much. I think it’s my shoes. I have new running shoes but I’ve still been using the old crappy ones I’ve had for probably a year now.
Tomorrow morning I am going to try to get up and work on breaking in my new shoes. I also got a pair for Vibram Five Fingers that I would love to start to run in. So far I just wear them normally and creep out Tim.
I noticed this yesterday before I went running and man, either Reebok likes to size things big or Adidas likes things small… it’s about an inch and a half difference between the two.
