Running (Week 11) January 26th-February 1st

"The long run is what puts the tiger in the cat."
- Bill Squires

I have officially conquered my cold and am back in the game. I realize that to most people six miles doesn't seem like a long distance run, however.... I ran this distance two days in a row and I am claiming them as long distance runs! :) I officially reached a turning point in my cold on Friday and began to feel like myself again... so in a last minute attempt to make up for miles that were lost to a fever and cold, I ran 12 miles in two days!

A special thanks to everyone who has supported me and my running...your encouraging words keep me going! Take a look at week 11:

Monday: 3 miles (feeling much better!)

Tuesday: 4 miles (still fighting the cough...but can trudge through)

Wednesday: 0 miles (cough in full force)

Thursday: 0 miles (tired, still fighting this cold!)

Friday: 0 miles (eek, even I am getting nervous about not running!)

Saturday: 6 miles (feeling back to normal!)

Sunday: 6 miles (the only thing that hurts are these poor lil legs!)

Weekly Total: 19 miles
Total Training Miles: 127 miles + 135 minutes of swim

For those of you who do not know- Logan will be doing the Relay for Life the same weekend that I am home to do the marathon. Come and join us in supporting Logan, my dad, and the fight against cancer!! My twin sister, three friends flying in from CA and I will show up to lend our support! :) We will stay and support for as long as we can, however this is the night before the Rock N Roll Seattle marathon...so we won't be able to stay all night. . .but we will stay as long as possible! We hope to see you there!
Thanks again for your support, it means a lot! Here is to week 12- the miles keep increasing! Yikes! :) - Sarah

6 miles is definitely a long run. That is basically a 10k race and you ran it 2 days in a row! Think of all the people who only run a single 10k and then take the rest of the week off. Or the people who only run a 5k! And then there are all the people who never even run a 5k in their entire life.

Congrats on a great accomplishment! Here's to setting new 'great accomplishments' each week that culminate in finishing a full marathon!
