To be completely honest with y’all, we have recently been a little slack with our training. Don’t get me wrong, we haven’t missed a long run but we haven’t been taking our shorter runs as serious. If we miss one, we’re not heartbroken and if we go on one and end up walking more than running then we’re fine with that. I honestly don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. Part of me feels like it’s ok, because we’re up to running 10 miles, which is basically 13.1. But the other part of me feels a bit discouraged because after we’ve come this far, I don’t want to give up or give less. We’re so close.
This week was a bit more difficult because we were in Pinehurst for a wedding, and let’s be honest, who wants to wake up early and go on a run when all of your friends are sleeping in or making a delicious breakfast together? Not us! I got to spend the day at the Spa at Pinehurst, which was absolutely amazing.
On a different note, you’ll see a picture of my socks above. I know it’s kind of weird, but these are the socks that I’ve been wearing for years. They’re from Old Navy, and have always worked for me. Recently I’ve been getting blisters on my feet – nothing that’s holding me back from running or causing major pain, but I’m wondering is this normal? Or does anyone have a running sock recommendations?
Miles this week: 13 Miles
