7 Miles

Jogged it. Ran it. Walked a few bits. Walked often, but short bits. We do the “run for 5 minutes and walk for 1 minute” thing.  Or is it 10 minutes running…?  Halfway through, I was given a bit of banana and I ate it, but it didn’t fare too well in my tummy. And then I got stitches. I think next time I’ll refrain from eating while I’m running. I also had to pee for the last half. Very annoying! Anyway – still, I finished and am proud of myself.

Next week: 8 miles.

    Actually, I’m not just running a long run on Saturdays. This last week I ran 3 miles on Monday, 2 miles on Wednesday, and another 2 miles on Friday before running 7 miles on Saturday. The week before I ran 2 miles on Tuesday and 2 miles on Friday before running 6 miles on Saturday. This coming week I plan to run 3 miles at least 2 or 3 times before attempting 8 miles on Saturday. Most experts agree that this is proper training.
