2013 Goofy Challenge: Week 8 – Another 12 Miler

Week 8 Recap

What an awesome week!   After kinda lame week last week, I could not as for a better week!  I felt strong in all of my run and felt like I’m getting better and better (thanks for the running partner who pace me!).   I do really need to incorporate strength training and cross training on my schedule or doing tempo/hill run (ick).   I’m going to try to start that after my half-marathon next week.

8 weeks down, 20 weeks to go!

Plan for this week

Tues: Run for 45 minutes

Thur: Run for 45 minutes

Sat: 12 Miles

Tuesday 8/21

My new running buddy, Drew, and I went out to the trail around 6:30pm.    We started from the east part of the trail at Snoqualmie and run west to Fall City.   I had an awesome run!   Drew paced me really well, and boy, that girl run fast!   It made me run faster than normal and I wasn’t huffing and puffing.   That definitely is a confident boost for me!   I did 4.14 miles  in 45:20

Thursday 8/23

Another date-run with Drew.   We did the same thing like last Tuesday, just a shorter distance.   She totally kick my behind, and I was trying to keep up with her which made me run faster again.   It was awesome.   We did 3.16 miles in 33:16.

Saturday 8/25

Another 12 miler!   I started at the east side of the trail again at Snoqualmie and plan to run west for entire 12 miles.   I felt good and felt strong from the beginning.   The first 3 miles went by so quick!   Drew and Elysia joined me at the mile 3 and we ran together for a couple miles as Elysia need to turn around.   Drew kept running with me and she continued to pace me (you are so awesome!) and patiently take a walk break with me.    She stopped at miles 10 and wait our car and I continued to run another couple miles with my husband next to me on his bike.    It was so great to be able to do the long run with friends and love one!   I finished my 12 miles in 2:23.
