Its going to be a whirlwind trip, but it will be so fun, plus I kind of cant wait to ride around on our bikes wearing these
|I think its the barefeet and thumbs up that makes this so hilarious!|
One last exciting piece of information was that I RAN 11 MILES YESTERDAY! Yes, that deserves all caps because holy crap it felt good. I have been feeling pretty down about my running/fitness the past couple weeks and this was the confidence boost that I desperately needed. It was the farthest I've run since July and I am so happy to know that I can still run double digits after all this time. I sent this picture to Nichole right after my run,
|I texted something along the lines of "I'm back!"|
I wasnt breaking any land-speed records on this run but I dont care, it was pain free and thats all that matters. Its funny, I was nervous about this run all day, I was afraid I would have to stop and walk, afraid my hip/knee would hurt, afraid I am too out of shape to do it, and afraid that it would seem to take forever. Now dont get me wrong, 11 miles is still a LONG ways to run, but I dont know if its because I've done a few 13-14 miles runs before, or that things just went really well, but mentally, it didnt seem long at all. In fact, when I was at about mile 9, I couldnt believe I was almost done, I was ready to be done, but it just seemend to go by so fast. I guess thats a good thing, and that I still do have some mental strength left after all.
I am hoping that I am able to start some sort for formal trainig plan in the coming weeks, which makes me really excited. I've got just a few goals to chase down :)
So with that, I'll make sure to take lots of pictures this weekend and report back next week, have a great weekend!
