8 Miles!!!!

There was a ton of us running this morning! We met at Katrina's house. It was me, Katrina, Laura, Christina, Jennifer, Andrea, and Michelle and her daughter Kelly who are in Team in Training with Jennifer. So 8 of us total! Yes...we took up the entire street! This run was not one of my best. I was so tired. This past week I taught Vacation Bible School at church and it wore me out! And last night was the final night and final program for the parents. I didn't get home until close to 10:00 and had to get my boys in bed by myself because Andy was working. By the time I finally got myself to bed, it took my brain about an hour to shut down so I could fall asleep. So I probably got a total of 4.5 hours of sleep last night. I think that was a major factor as to why I didn't feel as good during this run. But the important thing is I ran the entire 8 miles...I did not quit! My right knee has been a little sore ever since that 12 mile run I did a few weeks ago. I am hoping it will heal quickly and isn't cause for concern. I am still wondering if my shoes are not right. But I did ice it today and it seems to have felt a little better after that. Good news is that my ankle felt fine today. So glad I didn't hurt it when I twisted it during my Thursday morning run! We ran our 8 miles in 1:41:50, at an average pace of 12:43. Some of the girls are meeting in the morning to run 2-3 miles at a sub 10 pace. I have opted out of that run...which I NEVER do! But I am sooo tired! I think my body needs to get some sleep. I will be running with the Sole2Soul Sisters tomorrow night though!
