Week 3: Repeat
Here is this week’s running challenge. Again, another fail for week 2, pretty discouraging. Therefore, this week’s challenge is a repeat of last week, which is 15 miles, again.
This time I was only about 3 miles short of the intended 15, but still short. It was pretty rough from the get go after a week off, but after the last run, I felt much better. No injuries and no blisters, (so I get to keep my yellow shoes), (YAY!), just ran out of time on Saturday. It was a pretty packed day from the beginning, and I was not able to fit in a run.
There is major bad news and a major set back: I waited too long to register for the Kansas City Half Marathon and pretty much ran out of time. I tried to register this past week, but registration was closed. I thought about doing the full marathon, but Xavier thinks that it might be a bit, you know, cucko, crazy, and I think he might be right. The next one I am going for is the St. Louis Rock and Roll Half Marathon on Oct. 27th. So, for now I am going to continue with the running challenges. I will have to settle for the Kansas City 5K and then the Rock and Roll, the week after. Let us pray that there will be no issues this time, amen.
PS: This Nike+ app, is a pretty great tool. It helps you keep up with your mileage and times, and shows your progress, which is extra nice, especially when it doesn’t feel like you are doing any progressing.
