He is the best running partner - so lucky to have such a great hubby :) He knows when to push me, knows when to back off, and knows when to ignore me when I'm getting overheated and cranky lol. We had a good pace - 12 min/miles which is faster than we usually make it through the woods so I'm excited about that. It was a nice push and enjoyable 90% of the way!
My VFFs felt great for the whole run (again, other than that rock incident... still feeling the pain of that today, yikes!). My calf is a little sore today but just the main muscle, not the tendon that has been having issues lately, so no complaints here. They feel fantastic on the trails, uphill, downhill, jumping over or stepping on roots and rocks... love them!
I found a new favorite running blogger the other day - Vanessa Runs - she runs ultras and is my new idol :) Check her out if you are in the mood for a good read about REALLY long runs! While I have no desire to live out of an RV and sell all my worldly posessions... I do love her theories on living more simply, living for experiences, and appreciate all of her running advice. She said it took her 3 years between her first 1/2 marathon and first Ultra... and then she ran 14 ultras that year! INSANE but awesome haha.
