Reality

9 miles done today. 3 loops of Lake Merritt.

My trashed legs didn’t loosen up until mile 6 when conveniently, my new iPod shuffle betrayed me and ran out of juice. SO RUDE.

I fought through the last lap and finished strongly. Felt pretty good until it occurred to me that during peak marathon training, 9 miles will be a midweek run.

And I will run TWICE what I ran today. SEVERAL TIMES.

Holy shit.

  1. You’re amazing! Way to tough through without music. I look forward to the post where you’re like….”Yup, so I went out for a casual 9-mile run. Looking forward to challenging myself on the 20-mile run tomorrow! 🙂

      Thanks so much for the support Rebecca! I will just have to remind myself that when I started half marathon training, 4 miles was a triumph. And I’ll have to ignore the part of my brain that says “BUT THIS IS TWENTY, CRAZY PERSON!”
