|okay, I know I just used this picture earlier today, |
but this was after the 5 miles yesterday
11 am: 5 mile run (with Tucker biking along)
6 am: 6 miles
12:30 pm: 4 miles (with Tucker biking again)
15 miles in 25.5 hours. Not too shabby.
Today was my first double, ever. Now that Ward is done with Boston and probably not going to train for anything anytime soon - it's all me! Yeah right. This little fantasy world I'm living in will only last about a week until he decides he's going to train for something. I may as well run as much as I can while the schedule is open, right?
It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I've been a little quite nervous about multiple runs in a short amount of time. For the past few months, I've been trying to get in two longish runs during the weekends as well. Actually, I really enjoy piling the miles on during the weekend anyway.
My "leg" for the team consists of three runs totally 16.74 miles. If I just pulled off a respectable 15 miles amongst three runs, I'd say I'm on the right track. We'll try the three run thing again next weekend. Next time, I'll aim at 17 miles total. I think "over-training" will be better for me in this situation anyway.
Have you ever run a 24 hour relay race? This is my first time ever. Heck, I never even run a relay race in high school!
