Marathon Training #15!

15 weeks down, 3 more to go!!! This week was my 40 mile week....and I'm so happy to say that it's over and I ran it all! Here's what I ran: Tuesday- ran 5 miles Wednesday- ran 10 miles Thursday- ran 5 miles Monday (today)- ran 20 miles I finished the 20 mile run in just under 4 hours, which equals about a 12 minute mile pace! For me that is REALLY GOOD. I'm very satisfied with that. I ran around Lake Hefner twice and my best friend Allison rode her bike beside me the whole way. I could not have done it without her so thank you, thank you, thank you Allison! I stopped about 6 different times to get a drink of water. The weather was perfect and there really wasn't much wind at all. I was expecting it to be WAY worse. Right now, I can't really feel my body. I'm pretty sure I'll sleep HARD tonight, but I don't even want to think about how sore I will be in the morning. I also don't even want to think about having to run 6.2 more miles on top of what I ran today. Hopefully the encouragement and motivation from other runners and fans will get me through it. On a good note, I'm finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The runs will decrease from here on out until the day of the race. I think I can pretty much handle the rest. This week I will run 4 miles Wednesday, 8 miles Thursday, 5 miles Friday, and 12 miles Monday.
