35K!

I was giving this post a lot of thought as I considered several options for topics or some kind of clever title..but I have nothing.  Nothing more than to say that I had my longest run to date yesterday - again!  Last week I did 26k and I felt over the moon about it. This week I was planning 30k but instead of 30k..it was 35k!!  

Many, many thanks to Marci's husband who was generous enough to accompany me on this mega run when Marci was sidelined with illness.  I felt terrible that he was up so early and on his feet for so long just to drag me along but I was extremely happy to finish!  The best part was that I thought we had only done 30k so to find out it was 35k was very, very thrilling.  In addition, I felt a lot better about the fact that I totally wanted to throw up at the end and it was comforting to know that it was because it was such a long run.  Thanks again Moe and I hope you are feeling much better Marci!

I must admit that making the jump from 26k to 35k in a week was tiring and I was pretty sore yesterday but I still feel great and without anything more profound to say - that is my boring post for today! :)

I happened across your site this evening - I am a fellow Canadian also training for the WDW full marathon in January. Congrats on the long run - I've got 33 scheduled for this weekend and am feeling a little terrified myself!

Happy training!
