That’s right! I ran 10 miles today! Wohoo!! It has been years since I’ve run double digits! I am just ecstatic :)
The run itself was tough. Not really sure why. My 9 miler last week was great but this week I struggled from the very beginning. Maybe I was dehydrated but I can’t think of anything I did differently than last week! Guess it just was one of those tough run days! Oh well, I made it through! I did have a side stitch from mile 4 on that was super annoying to deal with. I hate those!!
I ran 10 miles in 1:48:22, a 10:50 pace. For as tough as it felt, I thought I was going A LOT slower than a 10:50 pace, so I am happy with that! Hopefully next week it will be a little easier :)
My tummy did not feel very good after my run today so I haven’t really been that hungry. Maybe it will hit me tomorrow! I did feel super weak after my run, nauseous and lightheaded. I think I may need to add a sports drink or something instead of just some sips of water to my long runs. I might try that out next week.
Other than that, I have been studying and doing school work ALL DAY! I am finally finished for the day and enjoying The Biggest Loser. I heated up some Chicken Chili that I had frozen and it was so yummy!! I might treat myself to some ice cream for dessert! I think I deserve it! Haha! Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday! I wish it would stop raining here but I think it’s gonna be around for most of the week :(
Oh yea… so it ends up I got 3rd in my age group at the 5k on Saturday! Guess I should have stayed for the awards ceremony!!
