Milestone

April 16, 2007

Yes, yesterday was a HUGE milestone for us in our Marathon training. Jordan and I ran 20 miles… which is 32 km… which equals 3 laps around Burnaby Lake… and we survived it. It took 3 hours and 1 minute. I did have to ice my knees, take a lot of Advil, and I dozed off a few times while watching the Canucks game (whoops!) because I was so exhausted, but I’m still kicking. I can still walk. I am sore today; I kind of feel like I’m 80 years old, but I was expecting it. Yesterday was a personal best, a distance that I’m only going to surpass once, 3 weeks from now on May 6. Thank goodness! And thank you to my big Bro, if it wasn’t for your crazy idea, and having you as my partner, I would never have gotten this far.

Blisters

April 3, 2007

They suck.

I have blisters on my blisters, and my toes feel like they’re on fire with every step.

We ran another great mid-week five miler today though; only a little over a hundred more miles to run before the big day!
