Well, it's not the LONGEST run I will do in my marathon training, but it's the official longest run I have ever done to date!
14 Miles! Loaded with my phone, shot blocks, Tropical Fruit Lara bar and Knudsen Recharge!
Ready for those double digits! At a red light about 3 blocks from my place. Only 13.75 miles to go! I am wearing my I Declare charm- 13.1 for the Love of the run Charm necklace--I blogged about it here.
Cedar Lake, a northern addition to the chain of lakes that I don't often run! It was beautiful!! Overall my run went slower than I thought, but was also not AS grueling, which was a good thing. It was a challenge, but I did it!
I had some help too, my friend Alyssa roller bladed along side me and we met a nice woman biking the same trails as we were. We chatted with her for a good seven miles! It made the time fly by!
When I got home, I had a big bowl of pasta, beans and a little dollop of cream cheese!
Spiru-tein is a tasty, natural high protein powder that I add to green monsters, smoothies and after my run, a big glass of water to refuel and supplement!
I Love this tri-part protein and the Exotic Red Fruit mixes well and has little chunks of red fruit in it! It's great with just water.
Sunday was a beautiful day.
My friend Lynette married a great guy named Fred.
Congrats to the newlyweds!!
here i am doing my best cougar face-
alas no catches at the wedding!
I felt surprisingly rested, strong and HAPPY after a 14 mile run. I am looking forward to this week with speed work, running club at work and another long run next weekend!
Do you cry at weddings? Is there a song or a trigger? I do. All the time. :)
