Wednesday Workout Round Up

Posted Feb 27 2013 10:24pm

When we last left off I was about to tackle a 22 mile long run.  

Tackle I did.  Last Friday I ran 22.1 miles – On. A . Treadmill. 

Thats right folks, mama has gone and lost her mind.  But in all seriousness, it was out of pure necessity.  I didn’t have a window in my day to be 22 miles away from the kids, they were sick and I just didn’t feel comfortable being gone.  That and it was windy and cold.  Thankfully my apartment building has a small gym that is exactly 1 floor above my apartment so around 12:30 when the kids went down for nap I headed up there.  I was the hardest thing I have ever done – running wise.  Mentally I struggled from mile 8-22, physically I was sluggish from mile 16-20. But I did it.
