Now you wouldn't believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was ever going somewhere, I was running! – Forrest Gump
Yes, indeed! I said I needed to run more and guess what??
Wow! Good guess! Yep, I’m running more.
In fact, in this last week, I ran more than half of my total distance from all of last month!
Somehow, the dates conspire against me and half of my mileage was also in the last month, but for the week as a whole, I got in 27+ miles. And the good news (or the bad) is that I get to do the entire thing again this week! Yippee!
To keep on the run note, not only did I run Egads worth of mileage (for me). I also got in my longest distance ever.
It was hard, it was a struggle, it seemed like the distance would never end. I prevailed against insurmountable odds and overcame all. Yeah me!
What? The distance? Oh...um…
Yes, I realize that this is only 0.8 above half marathon mileage but still….give a boy some credit would ya??!!
Yes, it’s sad to say but I don’t think I’ve ever run 14 miles before. 13.1 sure, maybe even 13.3 or13.5 if the course was long, but never 14 miles.
So I have officially run farther then I ever have!
But wait! There’s more ground breaking news!
It involves my swim…no, no sharks…no, no banana hammocks (Thank GOD)…yes a new distance PR too!
I finally broke down and swam the Iron distance.
Yippee for me again!
What? The time? Damn! Why do you ask so many questions??
OK, OK. Fine!
2.4 miles = 2:09 hours.
Yeah, yeah. Not rock star status. BUT, I did make the time cutoff (barely).
Now…actually getting on the bike and riding…yeah, I don’t think so. Don’t even get me started with the 112.
But I still have 10 months to get faster. (And I plan on using every minute, thank you very much!)
