My last long run was on Thursday of around 9 miles. Yesterday, I ran 60 minutes on the treadmill at a steady good pace with no walk breaks. I will probably run another 30 minutes in the treadmill today. I will finish my training with 2 more runs on the treadmill of 30 minutes each before my race.
I am feeling physically good this morning. I have no pain in my feet! I am so thrilled. I think a combination of things attributed to this pain free morning! The CEP 2.0 running compression socks I wore during my run, the stretching and acupuncture treatments.
I'm going to keep a positive attitude this week and next time blog more about my training regime and the race itself.
In between training, teaching and cooking, I also found time to knit. This week I finished my sweater I had been working on to wear during my race weekend. This sweater was very challenging for me starting out but I was determined to get it done. Once I figured out the right stitch placements and how to do the right/left lifts correctly, the sweater became much easier to knit. The sweater is called Bloomsbury and I purchased the pattern from Ravelry.
Pictures of front and back. I love the sleeves and the laces in the back. What a beautiful design!
