Run Like a Mother

A Runner's Journey Towards Achieving the Ultimate Runner's High

13 Apr

TRAINING RUN: 12 MILES

Long run done for the week! I got up early and ran as the sun rose. It was awesome. I tried a new route and ran on George Washington Hwy because I was curious as to where that road led. Turns out it leads to the Dismal Swamp Trail where the Dismal Swamp Stomp Half was taking place today. I was planning to run that but completely forgot about it. Boo. That’s alright, though, because I’m running the Nike Half in DC in 2 weeks =). Ran slow as dirt today and my splits were all over the place. I’m still sore from the squat challenge I did with my watch team on Wednesday (74 squats in a minute). I didn’t realize how much your inner thighs worked until now, lol. It was a nice run and I’m glad I got it done before it started to warm up.
