While not coming close to Max's epic achievements, I had a bit of a milestone weekend in the running department. I'm 16 weeks out from the NYC Marathon, and it is truly important that I start ramping up the long runs. So Saturday, we went out to the Hamptons to visit friends. I took a long slow 10 miler, past a Vineyard,
down to Georgica Pond,
and then home. I felt fine after and was happy. On Sunday, I went for a very slow and laid back 6 mile run down to Sag Harbor, and still felt fine, and so when R__ was heading out for a run, I joined for another 4. So that's two 10 mile days in a row, with no negative after effects. Yesterday I did a spin class and ran two miles outside for a mini-bric . . . I'm still painfully slow, but not in pain, knock on wood.
Luckily today it's raining, so I won't be tempted to do anything stupid. I think I'll hit the pool.
