Oh boy has this been an exciting past couple of days. Since I only go to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the weekend does not always actually seem like the weekend, but nonetheless, I always enjoy it. Yesterday a few members of the marathon team and myself met at Panera for a run on the greenway. I was able to run 2.75 without stopping to walk at all! I have never, ever been able to run that far consecutively with no walk breaks. Such a huge accomplishment. Two goals on my fitness list are to run a 5k without stopping and run a 5k in under 30 minutes. I am signing up for a 5k at the end of March and hopefully I will be able to mark both goals off my list with that race.
Also yesterday, I took a nice 3 mile walk with my momma on the Townsend bike trail and then did an additional 4.5 miles last night with Yvonne. So yesterday I put in over 13 miles, so it was virtually a half marathon, only it took me all day.
Today I woke up REALLY early. Like, before 6am early. I drove over to Kingston to volunteer for the Knoxville Track Club’s Whitestone 30k. That’s over 18 miles in case you didn’t know. I was a course monitor and split timer at mile number 10. Luckily, I had an umbrella to survive the horrendous downpour that was plagued upon us, but it was so much fun cheering on all the runners. I even got a t-shirt which is always a plus! Such a fun day. Tomorrow I am filming with Missy Kane for her Fit and Fun show, then its off to the gym for Manic Monday. Happy weekending!
