That is how many calories I burned on my 8 miler last night. I counted that as 10 APs and I ate every single one. :)
I need to clarify that when I say I have gone 8 miles or 6 miles or 4 or whatever...I am not able to run the whole time. It suddenly occurred to me that I am not truly a RUNNER because I cant run more than 1-1.5 miles at a time. Never have - will I ever?
That feels sucky but I guess that my overall endurance will improve. I have trouble, obviously, with my leg but breathing is also an issue - I wonder if using my inhaler even in warm weather (my EIA has only ever acted up in the cold) would be a good idea.
Just a thought.
My coach assures me that I AM a runner b/c lots of peeps run/walk. Eh. I just tend to want to be better than I am I guess. Dont we all???
Today is a DOR and I feel better than I thought I would. My time doing the 8 was not much worse than the last time I did 8 - I was off by about 6 minutes (longer on this one) and my pace was only a wee bit more overall. But that was pre-injury. My overall pace on this run was a minute less than my overall on my 4 and 6 milers so that is encouraging as well.
I am wondering if I will do the half in less than 3?? I am shooting for 2h 30m. Somewhere in between is likely where I will fall. Then, I will have a baseline to improve on in Baltimore in October!
Sammy has strep throat.
Tomorrow, Jeff is going to be partaking of his Fathers Day gift which was a 4 lap ride in a NASCAR at Dover Downs Speedway in DE. He is NOT a NASCAR fan but I thought it would be a neat experience overall and he is psyched for it. I am sure that the peanut will be better by then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep your fingers crossed...
