Usually when I write a blog it's about some goal I've met or personal best I've reached. I've 'failed' a lot of times during the year I've been on Spark People. I just don't usually write about it.
So, today I was scheduled to run my last really long run in my marathon training schedule. I was to complete 26 miles.
Right now though, I'm fighting a cold. I bucked up this morning and headed out anyway, even though I really didn't want to. I made it 18.5 miles outside, and it was really a struggle after mile13.
I came home and hopped on the treadmill hoping to finish it out, and I did make it to 24 miles! (Yay) But didn't feel like doing the whole 26. I probably walked around 3 or 4 miles.
But hey, it's ok that I didn't reach that goal today! It's ok I ran slow and had to walk!
Want to know what happened durning the first part of my run though? I met my next door neighbor... and you're not going to believe this... but she's training for the same marathon I am! How cool is that!
Even better, she wants to do some duathlons and triathlons in the future! So that is super exciting, and the next time I see her I'm going to have her join Spark People!
