Traci - Week #9
All my weeks are clouding up into one. Week 9 started off for me doing the 5 mile Tiblow Trot on Saturday morning. I have to say it was a blast. Jen and I busted it out, horrible hills and all, in 49 minutes! Then Monday I swam 600m and was lazy the rest of the week. Then came this morning, which I guess is technically week 10, but who cares. At 5am Jen, Cori and I ran our L18. And it was L. I felt pretty good for the first 15 miles and then out of nowhere I ran into that new huge brick wall they just built across K32. Have you guys seen it? Well, it hurts. The last three miles my body was done. It was clearly telling me that it couldn't go on. It was all I could do to just lock in, focus and finish. It's over with, I'm hurting, but I can't help but smile when I realize that other than the Marathon, we just have ONE more of these horrible long runs left before tapering off. Best wishes to Jen, Cori, Nickie and Holly as we complete our last week of long runs!
