I started off week 14 with a 6-mile run-walk Monday on a city running tour in Honolulu. I forgot to pause it during miles 2 and 5 when we stopped for snacks and photos, so the time is screwy. My shin was sore, so I popped some Motrin and did a lot of pre-run stretching. I got through! I also found a rainbow (above my sweaty head).
At the end of week 14, I got in another 6 miles: to the park, around the park, and home… but I had to walk most of the last mile… my right calf cramped badly and my right foot was completely numb. It didn’t help that my watch face froze most of the run, then wouldn’t allow me to click done after. So I took a photo of it for the blog. Overall, I felt good during most of the run, keeping about a 12-minute pace until I walked.
I’m making progress though: 2.5 months ago I couldn’t run a half mile. Aches and pains are all part of the process, right? The black tee is my post-run mood lately… lol.
This week, I also got my new 2018 planner. 2017 has been amazing… now, it’s time to get cracking on next year with my new planner from May Designs.
Here’s my tally for the last 3 weeks:
Week 12: 6 miles ran
Week 13: 2 miles ran (the shin sidelined me)
Week 14: 12.2 miles ran/walked
18 days til next 5K
67 days til FIRST 10K
107 days til Half-Marathon –> I’m running for St. Jude, support me!
