Sunday Success

What started out as a rough weekend, well, ended up turning around. 

I wanted to feel sorry for myself, but then realized life is just too short for those feelings.

I made up for lost time by hanging out with my friend next door last night and watching her son perform an amazing role in his high school musical.  He was amazing!  We finished the night with a cast party at her house, and I even indulged in a couple glasses of wine.   

This morning I woke up a little late as a result, but I put on my running clothes immediately so I wouldn’t have time to talk  myself out of today’s long run.  I did some research, and found a good trail to run for my planned 10K.  I PR’d this 10K at 59 minutes, and just wasn’t ready to turn around so I kept going-with a goal of 5 miles out-and back.  I needed to see if I could run 10 miles, and the weather was downright perfect minus the wind that I fought with on the way back…But I didn’t quit, and although my knee started to feel the effects of the miles around the 7 mile mark, I refused to quit!  10.01 miles complete at 1:35!!  A 9:29 pace, and I was darn stoked.

I came home, showered, and the girls and I hit up Red Robin to celebrate.  I wanted a nice yummy burger and fries, but instead had the Cobb salad and it was delicious!  We ran our errands late, but were able to pick up my Epsom salts, groceries, and headed home.

Meal prep for the week is now complete, and I will hopefully sleep well tonight despite my knee hurting. 

I completed 78 miles in the month of April.  78!!!  That is a personal best for me, and I only pray I continue strong in my training. 

Thank you to everyone who supports me on this journey…It truly means so much!!!

  1. My favorite part of this was when I asked you what made you decide to go longer and you said, "I just wasn't ready to turn around yet." Love that you had such a great run!
