About 2 hours later my hunk and I were off running. Since this was only his second time out, he ran my warm-up with me, about 20 minutes. I went back out for a total of 4 1/2 miles and it was a beautiful day to be outside.
Since I've decided to test my body and see if my knees are physically able to handle the training miles of a marathon, I planned to do an 8 miler today. However, nature had other ideas and after work it was pouring. Usually, I'm not such a pansy about running in rain, but this wasn't rain, this was a full on aquatic assault. So anyway, I decided that, as much as I despise the treadmill, I would have to do my run on that. 8 miles and an hour and 15 minutes later, I was finally finished. That puts my weekly mileage at 23.5, yea! In case you were wondering what I eat after my longer runs...
And here's my favorite little blogging buddy...
Everyone enjoy the rest of your weekend, I have to go ice my shins!
