Aaaand with that, peak week is done! Thank goodness! 😂
My long run was 12 miles today, and I did that around my neighborhood. As you can imagine, that can be a little bit boring. Mostly because I run here everyday, but also because the farthest I can get from my house is about 1 mile. So that can get a bit monotonous after a while.
Luckily it actually wasn’t too bad this morning! I broke my run up into 2 mile segments, so I’d run 1 mile away, 1 mile back, then quickly stop back at my house for a drink of water/Gatorade. That definitely helped break up the run and kept me from getting too bored.
Anyway, I felt pretty good up until the last mile, but I’m very happy with how everything turned out. I totally killed it going up hills today. 😄
Afterwards I took my first ice bath. Holy cow that was an interesting experience! It totally helped my legs though! The we’re definitely less sore/tired feeling afterwards. Shoutout to Luke for making me hot chocolate and dumping ice on me multiple times. Running truly is a team sport and if moments like that don’t prove it, I don’t know what will!
I spent the rest of the day eating and watching TV. Not very productive, but I like to think I earned it. 😄
I hope you’ve had a good Saturday!
