First 12 Miler...And It Hurt My Butt
So, my long runs are not scheduled. It's either, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Whenever I can have someone watch Max, so I can do it without the stroller. I did a 12 mile run on Saturday morning, and after mile 10, my butt actually started to hurt a little. But I wiggle two more miles out, and completed the run.
It didn't really boost my confidence for the marathon, but I do realize I have about 4 more months of training. I can't kid myself...the Lupus flares can play a role on how good my running will be, but usually it's after the run, that I feel the irritation and inflammation on my face.
Donations are not where I wanted them to be, but help is on the way soon, and looking forward to the extra motivation it will give me to complete this. Pretty tired tonight....but so happy to open my fridge to all the fruit and veggies I prepared on Sunday...it's such a time saver!
By the way, saw "Where the Wild Things Are" with Max. Totally didn't expect the movie to be the way it was. I thought it was kind of dark for a 4 1/2 year old, but he said he liked it and wanted to see it again!
