Yesterday afternoon I did my first 13-mi run! I did it at my goal pace of 5.8 mph, so it took 1:34:30. It was really hard to keep going and going. I did jump on the rails for breaks, and I took a couple stopping breaks. Wow. However, I didn't have to go to the bathroom, which is good news, I hope, for the actual race. I distracted myself by watching one of my all-time favorite movies: Contact with Jodie Foster. I hadn't seen it in quite awhile, and I did enjoy it.
Today I'm pretty wiped still, although I'm not sure I feel as tired as I did after the 10K race last Sunday. I did break a new personal record for calories burned yesterday: over 4000 calories according to my Body Media device. And about 34,500 steps for the day, another personal record. Well, running 13 miles will do that!
This morning I started a strength block in my morning exercises. I did Body Beast BUILD Shoulders. That burned about 125 calories. Surprisingly I'm not too sore today from boxing yesterday, but I can feel I'm going to be sore tomorrow from the shoulder workout this morning.
