I went 18 miles today
Yes, I really went 18 miles. I rocked the first 11 of them. Then did pretty well for the next 3, then my legs just wouldn't move any faster than they were moving. I felt GREAT. Not winded, not tired, the bottom of my feet were sore and I had an new rubbed sore spot that will get body glide next time, but I just couldn't my legs to not plod along. I took more walk time and am pretty sure I walked faster than I ran. I don't know what it was, other than perhaps just the length of time I was out there. Something about 4 hours being plenty long enough :). For the first time though, I had the mantra going in my head. Guess I need to find a better one, but this one DID get me through a couple of miles Wondering if I EVER want to do full again. Probably not, but I WILL finish this one and WILL keep running, because I do enjoy it.
