2 weeks (well, now 1 week and 6 days) exactly until the R n R Vegas Marathon/Half!!!
I did my last “long” run last night after spending the whole day at the library. By the way, if you’re ever feeling a lack of motivation to run, spend the whole day at the library and you’ll be ready to bust out and move your legs 🙂
By the time I started my run it was pretty late–around 7pm–and it was already dark. I knew I should probably run on the treadmill but it was SOOO nice out (60s and no wind). I decided to go splitsies and run 2.5 miles around the gym and then run the rest on the treadmill. I was really only planning on running 14, because that was the next step up after my last long run of 13.1….but once I got to 11 miles on the TM, I said “what the hell” and finished another mile and a half for a total of 15 miles.
This was most likely my last long run in these 2150s….my babies. They will now be relegated to the ever-growing used running shoe pile at home (I should really get my act together and donate them)!
I’ve got these 2160s beauts on standby, ready to be worn-in
The subsequent ice bath was especially uncomfortable (maybe because it was so late at night)?
Either way, I’m so happy that I’m done with the long run for the week and only have one more 10-12 miler before the race. I keep getting emails from RnR telling about the size of the race (44,000 people this year…it’s gonna be a shit show!). Eh, I’ll probably show up half drunk/hungover anyways 🙂
Have a great start to your turkey week!!!
