My last long run, as I wrote about was just bad all the way around.
Today I ran my longest run yet (18 miles) I ran with friends from my team, definetly think that helps. Also I ate quite a bit a this morning, so I had some energy!! Yeah. I can be taught!
I am so worried about running out of steam that I tend to run a little slower than normal for my longer runs.
Here is the breakdown:
Avg HR 143
Max HR 172
Not too bad for me~! I tend to run a higher HR in a race, but I think that is normal.
I wish I had a pic of us all sitting in the river after the run, pretty funny sight 6 women sitting in the river. A man and his son were down at the river, looked at us like we were nuts! River is still pretty cold, but it felt good on the muscles. I did enjoy it better than pouring ice in the bath tub. We were joking saying during the winter we will have to have someone come and sit in the bath with us, with our ice!
