I ran about noon today because I spent all morning doing homework. None of the guys said that they wanted to run today with me so I was on my own again. I was feeling lastnight's run all morning and was fairly tight in my lower back for some reason? I took it out easy because I wanted to go 15 miles, and not only did I run lastnight, but my long run was just over 10 for the year.
I figured I needed some distance and some hills for next weeks race so I went on a modified version of a loop I was donig last year that goes up Providence hill, runs along the bench down in to Millville and back. The old loop was about 14.6, so I added enough to make it a full 15 miler.
I felt crappy most of my run, really heavy. The hills hammered me, and I got attacked by a few dogs in Millville (that I might go take care of later), but I finished. I feel really tired and my body is wore out, probably from running 25+ miles in 24 hours which I am not used to. Even though I felt like I was crawling home, I still ran fairly good. I am glad to get a15 miler under my belt at the first of March, something that I have never done before!
I reached my goal this week, even with a crappy start because of the snow. I am going for 50 miles next week.
