{Workout Recap}

This past week I ran more miles than I have since mid-July.  Some of these miles seem small compared to what I am used to running, but when I consider than I haven’t ran 5 days in a week in two months, I am grateful and feeling like myself again.  Today’s long run was difficult.  I am so out of shape, but I knew I just had to get it done.  I put one foot in front of the other and held on for just over 13 miles WITHOUT music.  My pace was slow for me. Keep in mind everyone runs a different pace. My slow might be your fast, and my fast might be your slow; the point-we all know how it feels when we run “our” slower than slowest pace. Today was about being mentally tough.

I feel surprisingly good tonight and my ankle is only moderately sore.  I think it had something to do with the awesome juice we made in our juicer after our runs. The juice had 6 oranges, 4 apples, half a big bag of carrots, a lemon, 2 cups of blueberries, 2 cups of raspberries. The result=awesome!
