The first full week of the kids being in school was busy, to say the least! Throw a brand new puppy into the mix and things get even crazier! Actually I am really surprised what a good puppy Buck is! He is already crate trained and we have been taking him out 1 time in the night, he actually slept the entire night through on Sunday.
My running has been going great too! I logged in my longest week at 30 miles and completed half marathon #9 of this year on Sunday.
I ran the Romeo 2 Richmond Half Marathon and finished in 2:03:13 and learned never to take a gel so late in the game.
At mile 11 I was getting a bit worried that I did not eat enough so I decided to make another Huma Gel go down. Big mistake, within a quarter mile my side hurt so bad I started to cry. I could hardly breathe and I slowed to a walk trying to compose myself.
I did manage to pull it together and walked for at least another mile until I saw my coach who got me slowly jogging towards the finish. I was shocked at how my stomach just siezed up in pain from the gel at that point but I knew I had to get to the finish line one way or another so I just took it really easy but lost at least 5 minutes of time.
Oh well, I have another half marathon this weekend that I am looking forward to getting redemption on and just thankful that my muscles recovered really well from this past weekened.
Seems it is always something, lol
Have a great day everyone!
