First Loooooong Run

Well its the day AFTER my long run and I think I'm going to die I'm so tired and achy. Remind me over the next 12 weeks that on my long run days I should NEVER EVER sub RPM class (spinning). For those of you who don't know part time I teach RPM, my classes are on Monday/Wed/Fri. But I was asked to fill in this Thursday (and Saturday). I thought since I was doing the morning show I could teach class at noon then go home rest then run my 8 miles. I was right I could do it cuz I did it but I was wrong because I'm so wiped out. Last night I went to flat top after the run and couldn't even eat because I felt like I was going to puke. OH and to top it all off the last 3 miles of the run I got a flare up of the runners trots and yep there was blood this time. I need to make that doctors appointment, today I promise.

Here's the breakdown of my long run:
Mile 1-9:23, 2-10:41, 3-10:53, 4-10:38, 5-10:22, 6-10:53, 7-11:21 and 8-9:24 total time was 1 hour and 23 minutes and 837 calories burnt. I took my time with the long run and plan to always do that because this is a marathon not a sprint right? I'll focus on speed on Mondays and Tuesdays when I go for the short 4, 5 and 2 mile runs. I felt fantastic the whole run breathing and heart rate were comfortable until mile 5 when the runners trots kicked in as you see mile 7 was hard because that was when it really hurt. But I'm not one to stop if I know I can push through so push I did and I feel awesome I finished but terrible because I just tried to do to much yesterday and my body is letting me know. Hey ya gotta make mistakes to learn, lesson learned is NO MORE RPM on my long run days! OH and yes make a doctors appointment!
