Here is my weigh in info:
18.6 % fat
Guys. This is an awesome weigh in and I'm wicked stoked.
In Marathon news, I completed my longest run yesterday; Twelve miles, unbroken. I gave myself 30 second breaks for water at the 5 and 10 mile marks. Here is what I learned on that run:
- It was so god damn hard.
- Now that my training runs are this long, I need to bring fuel for the actual run. Water was not enough. By the time I finished the run I was shaky and a little dizzy. I inhaled a protein bar in the car on the way home and that still wasn't enough.
- Going unbroken seems to be best; my legs didn't seize up on "breaks."
- The last mile was hard. I almost didn't finish. Luckily for me my sister-in-law kept an ongoing stream of baby related texts coming at me so I was distracted. She saved this run.
- My knee held up but HOT DAMN is it sore today.
I told my coach that the next time he schedules me for a 12 miler he needs to be there to carry me home when I'm done. He agreed.
Six miles today! Then a "rest week" whatever THAT means.
95 days left....95 days.
