Long run #14

I don't have good data - the Pod battery was dead (must have forgotten to turn it off last time), and I started at 116th and Morningside with friend J. We ran over to the park and did the first loop together, but she hasn't been able to run much recently, so it was pretty slow and with a couple of brief walk breaks; then I did a faster second loop on my own (maybe :54 for the second six-mile loop?) Very enjoyable run, in any case - the thing about going slowly is that you feel so strong!

12+ miles

Total mileage for week 14: 28.5

(It is so little! But I swam a lot, we will hope that counts for something. This coming week is the last really big training week, with as much swimming as I can fit in and a real long run on Saturday, of 20-22 miles. That will be good!)

(In fact I add up the five swims I have had this week already and I see I did 10,000 yards exactly! That is exciting. But I think I will swim again tonight anyway.)

More yards in than I did! ;-)

A quick conversion gives me 9,624 yards ...

That's why I love to run with my aunt: we creep along and go forever and then I sprint at the end, and throughout I feel so tough and buff

Yes, 10,000 is nice weekly yardage number. Unfortunately, I haven't seen it since Hawaii ...

Glad you felt strong on your run. Remember that feeling in Philly :-)
