I ran 50 miles this week. And 68 miles in the past 8 days. I want to have a party, but instead I'll write a blog post and maybe have a rest day. (Actually, not maybe. I will have a rest day. Tomorrow.)

I know that some of you (ahem, ultra runners!) can do that in your sleep, backwards and without body glide. But for me, it was a huge accomplishment. Perhaps the best part is that I actually feel good, and have no aches or pains or even soreness at all. Here's the week's recap:
Monday: Ran 5 Miles, 45 minutes of yoga
Tuesday: Ran 8 Miles
Wednesday: Ran 7 Miles
Thursday: Ran 9 Miles
Friday: Biked 15 Miles, 30 minutes of upper body weights
Saturday: Ran 15 Miles
Sunday: Ran 6.5 Miles
Total Running Miles: 50.5
Obviously, you will want to send me some kind of certificate, award or other form of acknowledgement. But please, no flowers. It's just too much.
In all seriousness, it's a goal I have wanted to reach for some time now. I just didn't want to do it and kill myself in the process. This week felt manageable and I'm proud, but I imagine the next week will consist of a few less miles to make sure my body can handle it.
|Evidence I am capable of the "happy" emotion.|
What's the next running or fitness related goal you want to accomplish?
I would love to run a sub-7 minute mile. Just one. That would be incredible for me.
Would you rather win the 100 meter race at the Olympics or the marathon?
Even though I'm a distance girl through and through....100 meter. It would be insane to be the fastest woman on Earth.
