Well I am officially into my new apartment (with my lovely new roommate JoJo) but the only problem is that I don't have any bedroom furniture yet. Hopefully it will be delivered this week...
Friday was my last long run before the Boilermaker 15k in two weeks from today. I set out early to avoid the sun, but it was still hot out. I did a simple out and back loop-de-loop of just under 9 miles on a pretty flat course. Around 6 miles my knees were really hurting and I finally had to stop at an intersection with less than a mile to go. I feel like I just need new sneakers but I was thinking maybe I could just get some gel insets to wear for the race and then get new sneakers after that??
8.9 miles in 1:13:24 (8:15 pace)
After the run I had trouble walking down the stairs, my quads were so sore! I woke up Saturday and went for a recovery run which turned into a super slow jog around the block. My legs would not move at all and its a good thing that I had today off from running so I could rest up!
Tomorrow starts my "taper" of sorts for the 15k and also tomorrow is my first day of work! I have my outfit all picked out and I am ready to go! I am a little bit nervous but really the first day can't be that hard...right??!! So tomorrow is a big day in a lot of ways!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
