Today I did my weekly long run for my half training. This week was twelve. I got through about ten minutes ago! Running on the treadmill for a long run is not too bad, since we have a TV and fan blowing on you. But at the end the bottom of my feet were burning and I was ready to be through! It took a one hour Duggar show and two and a half Full Houses. I finished at one hour and fifty-five minutes. Now I'm through with my long run for this week!! Next week is thirteen miles, then eight (to take a break before the race) then the RACE!
The race plan has slightly changed. We were not sure how big this race was going to be, or how well blocked off, so Julie and I were going to run with Daddy. I was not so sure about this. I wasn't so sure I could keep up with Daddy and Julie (not that we were going to run terribly fast). I knew Daddy would never leave me, but still...so Daddy asked if I wanted to run with Mama, which meant running right under two hours (which I have done twice). It was finally decided that I get to run by myself, which is what I prefer. Not that I don't like running with Mama or Daddy, I just don't like having to "keep up" with anyone. In a race, that is. I love running with a group in cross-country practice! So there's my running plan, I hope that was not too boring. What time I am going for? Other than under two hours, I have no clue. I forgot to say that Daddy and Julie drove the course. Daddy said it was really hilly. He described them as San Fransisco hills!! Wow!!! So we'll see. Happy long running!
