Me: I ran a half-marathon this morning!
Also me: I AM PANICKING BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO GET MY WORK DONE ALSDKFJASDFJDWSFSLG
To be fair, though, doing the half marathon reduced the amount of time it usually takes me to get my 15 miles in, so there ya go.
But yeah, it was kind of accidental. I was originally planning on doing 10k down by the river, which I did. I went out 5k and came back 5k, but then, instead of going back up the hill to get back home, I decided to Forrest Gump it and run in the other direction to see how far I could go.
Which turned out to be 5k out and 5k back again.
Of course, that’s only 12.42 miles, which meant I had to run up that damn hill by the hospital to get to 13.1, which is half-marathon distance. Worth it, though. The furthest I’ve ever run is about 10 miles, but that was with at least three stops. I didn’t stop at all today.
Remember yesterday when I mentioned I’m really bad at training when it comes to running?
