10 Mile Run

I did nail my workout this weekend. 31 miles Saturday, followed by 10 miles on Sunday. I did the 10 miles on the treadmill, since it was there, and gave me no excuse for not doing the workout. My legs really were not that tired; my knees were kind of sore. My goal was 10 miles or 2.5 hours, whichever. I did a combination of jogging and walking on the treadmill while watching TV. It really was not that bad. It seems like once I make up my mind to those 10 miles, I was committed to it. I think it also helped that I gave myself the option of 2.5 hours too-I was going to get the “time on my feet” whether I had to walk the entire 10 miles.
We then went out for the afternoon, and did alot of walking around the mall, which really tired me out. In fact, I am pretty whipped right now with the accumulation of 40! miles this weekend.

I did some thinking last night after getting home. I wondered why I did not practice better nutrition, like taking the Perpeteum with me again. It all came down to how I packed, with poor organization. I ended up packing late Thursday night, with all my dogs distracting me, so I think next race trip out of town needs a little better planning.
