Some days are good runs and some are bad. I've had to up the calories again. I've been having some really tired, achy legs lately, and I'm hoping better fuel will help with that. I also invested in a pair of procompression socks not only to wear during my runs but also after for the recovery. My next thing to try is the ice bath! I've heard it really helps with the soreness.
The training program I am doing has us running a decently long run the day before the actual long run. For instance, this week I have a 6 miler on Saturday and then an 11 miler on Sunday. It's training me to run on tired legs, and boy are they tired.
Bre is doing great too! I'm glad to have her by my side on those long runs. She only runs the weekend runs with me. She gets in a good workout in basketball practice and tumbling during the week. Below is a photo of our last long run we did by the bay. It was an awesome place to run, and we loved it! We ran the entire 9 miles without stopping, and no water breaks which wasn't too smart. I'm not a fan of running with water bottles or backpacks of water, but it's coming to that.
Thanks for all the encouragement as I strive to make this dream come true! I see many more races in my future especially those at Disney World!
Still my most favorite part of the day is being home with my sweet Luci! I wouldn't trade it for the world! I can't get enough of her sweet smiles!
