Run #54 (3.5 / 27:24)
I am still a little amazed that this streak has lasted this long. But when a new morning comes, my legs feel good and I think, "You never regret the runs you take...." So out of bed I go and on to the road.
Happy to be done with s'ghetti girl
Tonight at about the last mile of my run I noticed my legs. Meaning I felt them. They were tired and really would have been happy to stop or at least walk. But Shelly does not walk. Have I ever told you that? When I set a goal to run X distance. I run X distance. I don't walk. Not that there is anything wrong if someone else chooses to walk. It's just not something I do when I am running.
This is a touchy subject so I will tread lightly because I do not want to discourage or offend anyone who is practicing a method that allows you to run longer distances by walking some of it. In fact, if I do a 50 miler this fall, I will probably end up being forced to walk some of that race. Maybe.
Do you allow yourself to walk during a run?
Is it okay to walk during a race?
Run #55 (6.5 / 54:13)
I did not walk tonight. Like I said, Shelly does not walk. I just pushed through that tired feeling when I got to yet another hill and although my pace was a bit slow for me on this loop (since I've ran it for 2 decades!) I still felt strong when I finished and recovered quickly. But as for the streak, it still continues - it refuses to walk too.
Who knows how far it can make it.
Who is Tonia?
She is an amazing wife and mom of three who recently became a certified running coach. She is busy trying to complete P90x while increasing her mileage. Let me tell you that IS hard! She somehow manages to pull it all together through sick kiddos, races and a hubbs who has to be away at times and looks amazing doing it! She truly is inspiring. So if you don't let know Tonia, get over there and tell her I sent you.
