I did all my runs this week. I even had time for some cross training (yeah spin class) and some weights.
I managed to do six on the treadmill even though it was SOOOOO BOOOOORING.
|What? You don't use hockey tape and a gift bag to block the time and distance on your treadmill?|
Of course, I say all this knowing I have a twenty mile run on Sunday.
That's right, folks, Mama's about to hit the twenties.
Let me give you a couple of comparisons so everyone can collectively freak out with me.
Distance from my house to work: 17.2 miles
Distance from my house to my mom's house: 25.9 miles
Length of Manhattan: 13.4 miles
Length of Lake Shore Dr in Chicago: 21.1 miles
Distance from Florida to Cuba: 110 miles
Distance from Key Largo to Key West: 97.2 miles
Length of the Grand Canyon: 277 miles
I am running almost the distance from my house to my mom's, well over the length of Manhattan, further than my daily commute, further than the entirety of Lake Shore Dr, 1/5 the distance of the Florida Keys...and almost 1/5 the distance from Florida to Cuba.
It's cool. I can do this. No big deal.
This is my second to last long run. After this, I run 23 in mid-April and then I begin my taper.
Is it really April next month? What the hell happened to March?!?!
One last thing, I can't help but share my delicious breakfast from yesterday. Avocado toast with poached eggs. YUM!
