9 miles!

Over a week ago Friday I attempted 10 miles and failed. 

Tuesday I attempted 10 miles again and failed. I did 9.16 miles. I learned a lot. It was painful. I could barely walk at the end. But I'm more than proud I went that far even if it took me 2:17. 

I fueled well. I hydrated well. I pushed myself way further than I thought I could ever go. 

I did 1:1 run:walk and I think it works well for me, but I need to push a little less on my run. 

My calves were sore on the inside which is unusual but not too bad. I was sore longer than I thought I would be. 

Overall I don't have too much to say. I just hope it's easier next time! 

During (I need to work on picture taking and running!)

In other news I'm in Corral I for Tower of Terror. It goes up to J. I have a 12k this weekend so I'm hoping to get a good time and get bumped up at the expo. Either way I'm super excited but I want more time for pictures!

Did you have a long run recently?


  1. 2.5 weeks til TOT! So excited!

    Great job on your 9 miles! I did 8 this past weekend, and that will be my longest before the race.

    1. Thanks! It was definitely a struggle, but like I said I'm glad I did it! I have a 12k this weekend, then I'm going to try to do the rest of my 11 miles that the Jeff Galloway method has scheduled for Saturday, but I don't know if that will happen. Either way, I think I should be good, hopefully =)

      I'm really excited as well! It almost seems surreal.

  2. Congratulations!! That's awesome! I have a feeling you will rock your 12k and get bumped up!

    1. Awh, thank you for your support! I'm hoping I will, but I know it'll be fun either way =)
