I had to help a friend out with her dental board exams today so it was later in the afternoon (and quite warm) before I was able to head out for a run. My half marathon is in two weeks! So I had a long run (9-11 miles) scheduled for today.
When I got started, I felt great. Running felt easy today! But unfortunately, about 1.5 miles in, I had to go to the bathroom (no. 2, sorry if that’s TMI). I was not near a good place to go to the bathroom at the time so I kept on running.
I ran 4 miles in 40 minutes.
I carried a water bottle and took a minute walk break to drink water every 15 minutes. I felt really good about that time and distance, even though I set out to do a much longer run. Honestly, I’m sure the heat would’ve gotten to me not much longer into it. I thought about going back out after I stopped at home, but Suzie was being so cute, so I decided to be a good mama and take her to the dog park instead.
So I consider this all a success 🙂 I did the best I could for today and that’s all I can ask for.
