Rachael Fights Back
Hey guys. I’ve missed you. I’ve been a busy bee all day today. 
I slept in (heh, until 8:45am), and am somehow still exhausted even after over 9 hours of sleep. Once I finally got my butt in gear, I headed out to run 12 miles. Well. 
9.02 miles / 1:53:17 / 12:33 avg pace
Miles 1-5 were GREAT. I was focusing on 10:1-2 minute run intervals (run 10 minutes, walk 1-2 minutes) and that was working out well. But then next thing I knew, BAM. I hit a wall and it felt like I was trying to run while in a bear hug. I made it to 9 miles, and called it good. I was aiming for the 12, but I was time crunched and physically beat. I can’t complain too much though because this was my longest outdoor run so far since I moved here a few weeks ago.
I’m sore and my legs don’t want to sit still. It’s also only 7pm and I could go to bed. I might have to bust out some coffee because this is ridiculous.  
Look at the ridiculous route I ran. That’s all. 

No, wait. I haven’t joined the iOS 7 bandwagon yet because my stupid phone is making me delete things first and it’s a pain in my butt. STOOPID. I WANNA JOIN DA PARTY.

  5. seechrisrun said: I’d guess that bear hug was the thin air finally getting to you. Sounds like you’re adapting though if you can make it 5 without any problems.
