2013 Goofy Challenge: Week 6 – Twelve Miler

Week 6 Recap

It’s been six week!  Wow!  Time flies and I know that I am stronger today than I was when I start this journey.   I had great week with great runs.  Can’t complaint at all.   I did my 12-miler, and I was not feeling out of it afterwards.   With everything else that is going on with my health in general, I am very, very happy with where I am at today.   I’m not a fast runner by any means, but I am proud with my accomplishment so far!

Plan for this week

Tues:  Run for 45 minutes

Thu: Run for 45 minutes

Sat: Run for 12 miles

Tuesday 8/7

I felt somewhat antsy and I couldn’t wait to go out for a run when I got home.   The husband and I was on the trail shortly after we got home from work.   I had a great run and finish 5.01 miles in 1:02.   Not too bad

Thursday 8/9

We left a bit early from work and hit the trail as soon as we get home.   Another awesome run in the book.   I did 4 miles in 49.:13 and didn’t feel even tired afterwards.   I hope that’s a sign that I’m getting better at this!

Sunday 8/12

It’s the husband’s birthday, and of course, he have to be different and asked me to run my 12 miles on his birthday instead of yesterday.   Today is also Nike’s ‘Run your town’ challenge, so I told him yes.   We went to church as normal, and when we got home, it was a really hot day… like 90 degrees hot and I was just not up for running 12 miles on that!   So we waited, and waited and waited.   I almost didn’t go, but promise is a promise, and I was not about to bailed on the husband’s birthday present so I went out at 9pm.   Yes, that’s PM.   It took me 2:07 minutes for completing 12 miles and surprisingly, I felt really great after!


Well, you know this is coming.   I decided to join Team In Training again for my upcoming Goofy Challenge race.   If you don’t know who are they, go ahead and click the link and read up on them.   I’ll wait.

Done?  Good.   They are part of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society which is a wonderful organization that really dear to my heart and people at Team in Training are absolutely fantastic.   They created you a training program, schedule training run, assign running coach for you, and the spirit of the team within the program is incredible
