Not a whole lot to talk about today….nothing major…..just finished a 20 mile run!
My first 20 miles! DID YOU HEAR ME SAY 20 MILES?!
It felt great. It was hard. Very hilly. A big mental challenge.
Here is how I prepared mentally and physically.
I decided: No photos. No stopping except for water or to stretch. No walking.
The past weekend I took it easy, and the week before I did low impact cardio.
My legs and hips were certainly hurtin at the end, but I pushed through and rewarded myself with an ice bath, foam role session and a New York bagle, courtesy of my Sister in for the Jewish holiday.
Now, 3 weeks to taper and prep for the race!
Distance: 20 miles
Location: Forest Park to downtown St. Louis, MO
