The first week of June saw some heavy mileage completed. Still basking in the afterglow of the MS 50 Mile Challenge Walk I was able to complete 43.75 miles for the week.
I feel pretty good so far. I was lucky I didn’t have any knee problems and the back is pinching a little. One thing for sure, my legs are super tight. Whew, I’m in need of some heavy stretching. That is one of my main drawbacks in running. I just don’t do enough stretching. I’ll be honest, it bores me. It’s like I need to be monitored – “Laurel, do that stretching”. Oh well, I try:) Then there’s….
I can tell I’m still in recovery mode because I’m tired…and hungry! I laughed when I read a post from another enterprising blogger who called it “rungry“, Well, let me tell you, I’m way rungry. I’ve been eating my way through Belleville, IL for the last week.
Chick-Fil-A, and Cracker Barrel just to name a few. It hasn’t been pretty. I was so hungry on the last day of the MS walk that some of the nice people I met along the way were beginning to remind me of the old cartoon where the two guys are stranded on an island and hungry. They start to look at each other like food, one looks like hotdog and the other a hamburger. “Hey guys this is Laurel, she’ll be walking with us today. She’s very nice, but keep your distance, she’s a little…hungry”.
This would be my “other” lack of discipline I have acquired. I’m trying to tame my eating habits, but honestly I’m hungry, all the time. This is an area I really want to try harder.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful and peaceful Sunday. I’ve completed 462.06 miles and have 10,852.94 to go.
