Week 13 : Woah My Legs Are Burnin'!

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." - Matthew 7:24-25

Thanks to my aunt and uncle, Nancy & Jimmy Shook, for the donation to Team World Vision. Hope everyone has a blessed day!

The knee is feeling great. Still a little "twinging" here and there, but I was able to do my full week of training for the first time in a few weeks. Three 5 milers and a 19 mile monster! The midweek runs felt great. Did a 5 mile pace run on Wednesday and I was able to keep it under a 9 minute pace.

Week 12 Runs:

Tue: 5 miles
Wed: 5 miles (pace)
Fri: 5 miles
Sun: 19 miles (03hrs 01min. 02sec ~ 9:31 pace)

Total: 34 miles

So I again start my long run at 4:30 am. Even though ridiculously early, things were going and feeling great. I cruised through the first 13 miles in a couple of hours. I started feeling it at about mile 14 and by 17 1/2 miles, my legs were saying, "what. the. heck." I made it all the way through mile 19, but it had me asking myself if 7.2 more miles were in the cards. I know I will do it. My legs will get stronger and I will RUN the distance. oh, did I say that out loud?? Just one more monster 20 miler and 5 short weeks to go!
