Marathon training, Week 4

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 10:09 am

Oh my gosh. These runs are only going to get worse, oh um, I mean better! Today was a long run day. Missed my alarm, so I ran in the ‘hood rather than down with the Run On group. I’m sure my coaches are fed up with me already. 3 weeks and 2 no-shows. But I still ran!

Anyhooo…2:14:55 and 11.2 miles. Yuck! Just barely managed to keep a 12:00 pace this morning. I couldn’t feel my legs for the last 40 minutes. That part sucked. But, I finished it! I felt great for the first hour thirty or so, then I started to get a pukey feeling.

Now I’m off to my mom’s to do some work on her house. More sweating! I will enjoy my shower later!

Update
Called on the way to mom’s house, and I wasn’t needed after all. Yipee! Means I get to have fun instead. So, turned back around, came home, showered (why I bothered I don’t know), then went out and played sand volleyball for 3 hours. What a great time! Sand, sun, (no surf), jammin’ out to some 80’s music and ice cold Gatorade. Wanted a beer, but it was just too dang hot to be drinking and sweating. Even heard the song Playing With The Boys from the Top Gun volleyball scene. Yeah, the one where the oh-so-hunky Slider shows off his rockin’ abs, and Iceman looks just oh-so-yummy. Sigh, oh yeah! Oops sorry, had a teenage flashback moment there. Pardon me. *blush* Anyhoo…had a fantastic time! Oh my, but sand will find it’s way into some uncomfortable places! My volleyball game isn’t so great, but I earned copious style points for some digs I took. Even had a very “Charlie’s Angels” moment. HA!
