Last of the 6’s

Last of the 6’s

I finished them today.  The 6’s.  And I’m so freaking glad!

Ahhh, I hate to complain — but they were horrible.  10K a day — is NOT meant to be fun.  For the most part it wasn’t, but it WAS challenging.  And I enjoyed the challenge, most of the time.  It built me up — quite a bit.  I remember those first 6’s.  When I couldn’t do 3 in a row.  But then, it happened.  I started feeling s.t.r.o.n.g.  Ahhh — that strong feeling.  It’s better than sex.  LOL  W.E.L.L…don’t judge me.  When you’ve spent your life on the couch, feeling strong is kinda like a drug!

I’m starting to feel a bit beaten and battered.  My right foot – my heel really, is soooo sore.  And now my right knee is acting up because I’m walking and running funny trying to protect my heel as much as I can.

Marathon Brian said to me a few weeks ago — “the end is gonna be about pain management.”  I think I get it now.  More on that tomorrow.

Ciao for now…..Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
