Sunday workout: 20 miles, 3:01, 9:05 pace
HOLYOMIGOD, we ran 20 miles at a sub four pace. I know it’s a long shot that we will be able to run the marathon that fast (We can’t all be OUaL) but I am so happy/proud. This is also the longest run to date so double heck yes!
I did everything right. We started out at a 9:30 pace and I told myself that if we still felt fresh at 12 or so, we would pick it up. Well, we finished at an 8:00 pace.
The family is on vacation, to us. Since we live in sunny San Diego, my sister, hubs and two kids came out to visit for a week and my Dad decided to jump on and come down as well.
It’s really cozy in our apt. at the moment but we are loving the family time. I have no idea how mom’s find time to blog. Forreal, you guys are crazy. HRM, I’m looking at you, where do you find the time?
I’ve been MIA for a week, prepping for family to come, and spending time with said family. Now I have a huge backlog of amazing stuff to tell everyone.
Not to mention the fact that I destroyed my iPhone about a week ago AND changed banks. I was moneyless (no ATM card and funds on hold because I had just opened an account?), phoneless, and scrambling to get my life in order. It was one effing hectic week.
Many updates to come soon.
I deffo DO NOT want to go to work tomorrow.
Questions for all you marathoners:
If I ran a sub-4 pace today, should I even THINK about trying for that on race day? This is my first marathon.
My knees and legs were HURTING, like the bones hurt by mile 18 and those last 2 miles were tough, is this normal?
My energy was good, but my body was not. Could this be a sign of needing new shoes, or is this just what happens if you run nonstop on concrete for 3 hours?
p.s. Thank you to everyone who cheered me on and told me I could do this run ❤ it helped.
