The Wall

I think I have something against the number 8. 

You see I was plugging along training for the Tulsa Run gearing up for the 15k when I got to the 8 mile long run and I just couldn't do it.

I tried it on the treadmill and stopped at 5.  I went to the park and stopped after 4.  Something in my head won't let me keep going.  I haven't even gone running in almost 2 weeks because I've started boot camp.

But I want to do it.  I want to mark the Tulsa Run off my things to do before I die list.  I've got 25 days to go from my last long distance run of 7 miles to 9.  So I'm making my training schedule now.  Adding runs in with my continuing boot camp experiment. 

Time to tear down this flipping running wall.


  1. My work bestie is training for a marathon that she will run at the end of the month. She just ran 22 miles on saturday. It's crazy to think about running multiple miles. But if anyone can do it you can. You're a badass.

  2. I'm going to do 3 miles tonight and tomorrow night... then try to do 8 miles on Saturday.

    We'll see how it goes.
