Princess Half Training Week 10!

Currently training for:
Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Half Marathon
Disney Glass Slipper Challenge
Seaside Half Marathon
Azalea Trail Run
Crescent City Classic
Biggest Loser Half Marathon

This week was the last week of training for the Glass Slipper Challenge! My last long run! And 10 miles was on the schedule. Andria and Jen came to run with me! We decided to run our downtown route again. It meant hills but I knew that was only going to make me stronger for my races.

We started at 6:30 am. And of course we were rewarded with seeing the sunrise before we began our run!


The temps were in the 30's. It was chilly but once we started running we warmed up pretty quick! I enjoy running with Jen because she likes to talk. So she kept us pretty entertained! Before we knew it we had made it to downtown and to our first water stop! I was feeling great which was a good sign!


After drinking our water we hit the road again. This part of the route was the challenging part. The hills were beginning. They were tough but we conquered them well! And talking while running always helps! Before long we were turning around heading back. We stopped at the same water stop one more time for a quick drink. We only had 3 more miles to go!

Usually the last 3 miles are the hardest because I'm ready to be done. But I was feeling great and knew I could keep going if I needed to. That gave me great confidence for my races in Disney. Although I will be running these races more for fun than time, I still want to feel good at the end.

Before I knew it we had reached 10 miles! I was happy with the run and happy with my pace!


And I'm always super happy to have friends to run with!


My last long run before Disney was a great success...yay!!!

QOTD: Who will be running in Disney this weekend????
