Just a quick update tonight because I’m exhausted, and because I’ve just got in pretty late from seeing the new Avengers film! (its awesome guys, go see it)
I’m exhausted because today we ran 9.5 miles! Mega distance right?! Well its not our goal but it is, once again, the furthest distance we’ve run to date. Last week I wrote about how excited I was that our training really seems to be paying off as we’re improving massively, and I’m pleased to report that wasn’t a fluke week! We skipped our first run of the week because my ankle was feeling a little fragile and I didn’t want to do any damage, but we made up for it with an awesome mid-week run (we kept going way further than we needed to), and absolutely smashing previous records today: we hit 5 miles in our fastest time yet, and completed the whole 9.5 miles in 1 hr 56, when we were expecting a time of just over 2 hours.
Tuesday is sign up day, so wish us luck! We’ll be applying for the half marathon, and with any luck we’ll also manage to get spots on the 5k, but its not the end of the world if we don’t.
