I'm home back in Portland after a wonderful time with my family in MT. I hope you all had a nice holiday and break. :)
My last day in Helena (Friday) kind of sucked because I got really sick. It must have been a 24 hour flu or something because I was sick all day and had a slight fever. I thought I just ate too much at dinner Thursday, which I did, but it was more than that. Blech. Luckily I felt a lot better Saturday and was well enough to make the 10 1/2 hour drive home. And today I was even better and managed to do my 12 mile run. I didn't have a ton of energy considering I hardly ate anything for two days (and threw up everything I ate on Thursday, sorry tmi), but I did it. Zach was nice enough to run with me even though the pace was slow.
The good news is my legs feel awesome. Last year at this time I was hobbling around on super sore shins and calves but this time I feel great.
Here's the stats on today's run:
12.0 miles/1:51:24/9:17 average pace
Riverfront path/Springwater Corridor with Zach
total miles for the week: 22
I'm really excited for next weekend! I'm feeling really positive and ready for the race, it's a good feeling. :)
I have a few easy runs this week and I'll post my goals later too. I also will have a few pictures from our 5k run.
