|Just happy to be done!|
I think it was a little hotter than I realized. I skipped the mid-run water out and back and I was really feeling it around mile 11. I pushed through and made a note to make sure to hydrate better during the half. Silver Comet was packed today. Lots of folks out riding, skating, biking or just walking with their families. I realized today what a great asset this is in our area. It is built along an old railroad and runs for 61miles. It is totally free. It has restrooms, water fountains, benches, and picnic tables. With hubby's injury it means I have done most of my long runs on my own and close to home. With Silver Comet there is no traffic, it is safe and family friendly. It is shaded and easy to run any distance you want to run.
For the rest of my training it will be my normal weekly morning runs and on my weekends:
Next weekend I have a 5K on Saturday and Sunday I plan on a 6-7 mile easy recovery run.
The next weekend will be my last double digit run probably a 10 miler, easy pace and a shorter run the other day.
The weekend before Soldiers Saturday I have a 5 mile race and then will be taking it easy with slow short runs until the half.
I am looking forward to the race. Hope your training is going well too.
