Week 4

Our first double digit long training run- 10 miles! Had a great run! Perfect weather for running- overcast and cool.

Week 5

This was an 8-miler run at just under a 9:00 pace. Easy week came and went quickly!

Week 6

Ran with Molly on Friday June 25 around Neenah. ( I have to work the weekend so that's the reason for the Friday run.) I took off from running the day prior so I had nice fresh legs.

We ran our longest long run yet- 12 miles. Our time was 1:52 which is a 9:20 pace. It was a warm, humid, sunny day so we had several stops in search of water to refill our bottles. It made me appreciate the training runs that have water and Gatorade throughout the course.

My heels have been bothering me for the last couple of weeks so this week I did two of my runs on the treadmill -the softer surface seemed to help. I also bought some gel heel cups to put in my running shoes and have been icing. I'm being really careful to wear comfortable shoes in my non-running activities.

I have been cross-training with yoga one to two times per week which I have really been enjoying.
