Day 7 of the March Fitness Streak challenge is complete. And boy am I feeling it. Today was an 11 mile marathon training day. I ran a 10k race this morning, but there was a mistake on the route at the turn around and it ended up being 7.1 miles instead. My ankle held out pretty good. It started to flare up around mile 2. I wasn’t sure if i should stop and walk and rest it, or push through it. I decided to push through. The pain eventually subsided. I ran the entire 7.1 miles without a walk break. I think that this was the first time that I ran more than a mile, consistently, since December. Afterwards I ran an additional 4 miles, with a friend, to get my 11 completed. I’m feeling pretty sore.
Hubby and I went out for eggs and pancakes and a large glass of chocolate milk. Then we came home for a nap! Tonight we set the clocks an hour ahead, so we lose an hour of sleep. Hopefully the nap offset that lost hour of sleep. But I doubt it. I’m sitting here now, at 8pm and am struggling to stay awake.
Tomorrow is a marathon training rest day, but not a rest day from the March Fitness Challenge! Will either walk a mile on the treadmill or attempt some aerobics. We’ll see how I feel in the afternoon.
