This week I have been put through pseudo hell and back.
My training goes light week, medium week, heavy week. This week was heavy week. The past 2 weeks have felt you know, hard, but nothing like this week. I am sore EVERYWHERE. My back hurts, my arms hurt, my legs, my ass, my abs. Everything hurts.
Today I ran 8.6 miles and it was probably the longest 8.6 miles of my training yet. It took all of my energy to get through it. I got a second wind around 4.5 miles at my turn around point in the Highlands. Seriously though my legs felt like lead. Lead jelly.
Needless to say it took a very long hot shower of stretching to get all the kinks out of my body and I'll still be asking for a massage from Christopher later.
This long run also brings my total mileage this week to 20 miles!!!!
Epic. I feel epic.
In other amazing news, I had my first Atlanta Track Club Kilometer Kids meeting Thursday!
I'm so excited to get to work with kids. I really need to get my head out of the Engineering cloud I live in every day.
Tomorrow is rest + super bowl day and I will be vegging on a couch and probably enjoying a whiskey coke or two.
I hope everyone has a GREAT Sunday and enjoys it as much as I hopefully will.
