Today was my weekly "test myself," "pretend I'm at Disney World," long run. If you remember, last week I THOUGHT I had done enough for the next Duck medal from Jeff W. But it turned out I did 6.50 miles, and I needed 6.55 to get a new medal! Arrgghhhhh!!
So today, as usual, I added .25 to last week's run, which means I really DO get a new medal this week!! Send it on over Jeff!!
Thanks to some food advice from Rae, and learning from my run last week, I had an easier time of it today. I still don't know how in the world I am going to get through 13 miles, but at least we do have a few months left to work up to it!
I run at a Metro Park which has a 7-mile paved bike/walking path around a lake. It's a beautiful place, a little hilly, and today there was a nice breeze blowing across the lake. And since it's Michigan, and not really summer yet, it was a balmy 67 degrees. Excellent running weather!
