Comments: I made the run! I ran a 9.5 mile circle and stopped back at the house. The first 9.5 miles went OK. I got a serious side stitch at mile 8.5 and other than a run in with my ‘favorite’ dog the run went well. My split time for that circle was 11:47.
My brain could not understand that I wasn’t done with the running and still had to go another 5.5 miles. So I turned it off, which wasn’t a good thing to do: I decided to run a different route, just 2.75 miles out and back. I did not refill all my water bottles, just the two in the front.
I had never run the way I was going to run, I can’t even remember the last time I drove it. Oh boy, it was nothing but hills, up and down, up and down. My split time for the 5.5 was 13:28! I stopped twice to take pictures. Next time I want to run Hills I sure know where to go! 😉 I ran out of water 2 miles before I got home…oy!
This is where I came from…
This is where I had to go…
I have never in my life craved a cold bath before, but the last two miles of the run I was looking forward to hopping in the tub. That’s just what I did when I got home! Popped two Motrin and then took a two hour nap. Now my legs are a bit stiff, but not bad.
