I completed my third week of half marathon training this morning. I was planning on 6-8 miles for my long run in Forest Park. I was not planning for all the rain we had.
I wasn’t sure how this run would go because we’d been out kind of late the night before and I’d had three drinks, which led to a minor hangover this morning. I can’t hang anymore. We were at the city museum, where I did this:
I have loved climbing things since I was a kid and the city museum is great for that. The only issue was it was so hot and humid I couldn’t get enough water and figured I’d be dehydrated today. So I didn’t have high hopes for my run, but running being as unpredictable as it is, I ended up feeling great and I ran the full 10 miles my pacer did. I still feel great. The run must have made me sweat out all the toxins.
Earlier this week I had a rough attempt at speed work. The highlight was seeing these giant Asian carp in the River Des Peres.
