“Don’t judge each day by the harvest that you reap, judge it by the seeds that you plant” – Robert Louis Stevenson
The run of the 15th of December was my 39th training run, the last run of the 12th week! (Week 12: Dec. 9th-Dec. 15th)
39 runs in, 12 weeks down, 13 weeks to go and I’ll be running the Saturday Rock N’ Roll Marathon in Washington, DC.
Week 12 Statistics!
- 9:03 /mile
- 4.98 miles
Notable week 12 information:
- My injured leg is feeling much better. It still gets a little sore after a run, but not sore enough that I have to quit, nor sore enough that i can’t make my following run. I am going to stick with the stretches and keep it limber, and keep going to the chiropractor for adjustments.
- I ran 8 miles on Saturday. 8 miles seems like a long way to go and it is…but I never felt like it was too far, or that my leg was going to give out on me. I remembered seeing a commercial on television during the Olympics, where a guy was doing running and was listening to books on his iPhone. I have tons of audio books, I used to listen to them while I worked, so I put the unabridged Lord of the Rings on my phone, and have been listening to it. What a difference it makes! I can zone out to the book, and even though i’m running it feels almost like I’m curling up with a good book to get entertained. I’m almost ready to go run again, if only for the chance to hear the next chapter in Frodo’s saga.
