18 Miles Here I Come!

Today is my first 18-miler.  Actually it will my only 18-miler because next up is my first 20-miler!  I didn’t make it last week because I just fell apart mentally.  I have been coaching myself all night and all morning telling myself that I can do this and I will do this.  I feel really ready.  Now I just need to be careful to head out slowly and not jump the gun and go out too fast.  Right now I am watching Oprah’s weight-loss special from yesterday to give me a nice final boost.  I will check back in when it is done.  🙂

    I’m having trouble hitting my long runs too. I got 14.21 miles in today in the rain. Needed 16, but I left my garmin at home. I had to guess. I knew I wasn’t to 16, but I was tired.

    Next week, I’m supposed to do 18. I’m running a half marathon and plan on adding 5 to the end of the race. We’ll see.

    I didn’t make it either. 14.48 miles and I was so cold I couldn’t take it anymore. I just happened to be in front of my parents condos, so I went and rang their bell and had Dad drive me home. How sad is that!?! Oh well time to hit the showers. Might try to squeeze another 3.5 in tonight before bed on the treadmill.
