Day 9: Slow An’ Steady

January 13, 2012

Mileage: 6.2

Total Miles: 65.9 (106 kilometers)


Day nine was slightly easier for me than eight. I made my minimum distance in the early afternoon by going around a small loop near my house. I just go a few blocks, turn, go one block and come home in a rectangle. I did two laps alone in the morning, two laps with my wife and two laps alone. It was refreshing but painful. I stopped at my house almost every lap to drink water and or ice something.

After a long run, the first two days after my body needs extra water. Those days it seems like almost any effort at all results in instant dry mouth. What felt the best about these ten kilometers was knowing that tomorrow I would be able to make up the lost distance. I am behind at this point if I am to make it to 366k and beyond.

Also, I made it to 100k! Triple smiley face 🙂 🙂 🙂
