This is the last full week of training before I head to Orlando. My last double digit run was the 12 miles I did on Sunday and it felt great even though it was on a treadmill. I have found out that through this training that I can do a lot of miles on the treadmill and still survive. Thanks to the wacky, dare I say goofy weather I found myself inside more than I liked but was able to make it through.
The fun thing about running inside is that I did get to meet some great and motivating people every morning. I felt like I was a part of the 5am running club and it was nice. A quick little hello or wave and off we went. Most of them I found out later are tri-athletes and we kept on chatting about how much I would love that. I am not sure if I am interested but it was fun being a part of the group.
Going inside reminded me of something I have forgotten it is great to have a running buddy. Someone that shares your passion and helps to push you. Thanks to my buddy Lucy, I made my 12 miles in 1:55 yesterday. What is funny all she said is that she will sprint with me and we cranked up the treadmills and away we went.
Unfortunately this is something I did not get running outside, I was normally alone. Not that I minded, but it is making me that much more excited about Disney and if the enforce the ban on headphones I feel I will make it through.
So here is the last week:
