I RAN 3.1 MILES WITHOUT STOPPING!!!!!!!!!
When my friend and I met up last Friday to run the race course, I suggested we see if we could run the whole distance. If we couldn't that would be fine; we still have more than a month before the race to work up to it. She agreed to try, so we did. I had already found the 1- and 2-mile marks in my car. When we hit the 1-mile mark, we were happy. :-) When we hit the 2-mile mark we were almost delirious! :-D When we finished, we were ecstatic! :-DD
On Saturday I had time to do only 2 miles, but I did them nonstop and with a 3-pound weight in each hand, which I didn't have on Friday. On Sunday I did 2 miles at a park with a friend. It was 2:30 in the afternoon and much hotter than at 6:00 in the morning when I usually go. Monday I did 3.1 miles with weights near my house then went to fitness class with http://www.fitnessinfusiononline.com/ and did a 45-minute workout. Today I did 3.5 miles with weights near my house. I forgot the last few days that I was going for 3.5 miles to overtrain just a little bit so the actual race would be easier.
Tomorrow we should be back downtown on the course and I'll time us. I posted some times on Facebook yesterday but now realize they were inaccurate. I'll post correct times tomorrow.
I'm gathering scriptures to decide which ones I want to write on the Tshirt I'll be wearing for the race. This is getting exciting! October 8 will be here soon!
