MARATHON TRAINING// 🏃🏾
Did an 11 mile run today, the furthest I've run so far on my #roadtonycmarathon.
Made it to 9 before I had to stop and hobble the rest of the way. Made it to 8 before the hobbling last time, so I'll take the victories where they come. #OhMyQuad
It was so hot out, my hands expanded! Real fat runner hands happening. I don't know what that means or why it happens, but apparently it's a thing.
There were several points along the way I considered asking someone to let me hitch a ride home on their boat, but I managed to refrain. I am now lying on the sofa icing my knees and hips and wondering how on earth I'm going to manage 26 miles. More than twice as many as I did today. More than twice. Having a bit of a crisis of faith about whether this is even possible.
I'll be really impressed if I actually manage to make it all the way round New York Marathon without collapsing somewhere along the way. Here's hoping I can do it. #MyFutureSelf
