Hogging down on a Chipotle Veg Burrito Bowl after duking out 16 miles on mr. elliptical (that sounds scandalous... and since my life is boring, i'm leaving it)! I may have also indulged in some Ben and Jerrys Colbert American Dream ice cream (it is a darn fine ice cream my friends, every good American eats it).
So I didn't make it said 20 or 22 miles on mr. elliptical, although we did become quite close, I think I made a new bff in the process. I spent a quality 2:20:00 with my new bff, by the time I finished he knew all my crazy AND all my fantastic! We talked, we laughed, it was a good time... I went until my legs ached like they did on my 20-miler a few weeks back, and then went another mile. Ed kept me company for about 30 minutes, I read a chapter in my book (reading eat, pray, love... yes i know i'm waaayyyyy behind on finally reading it, but i've been busy), and then turned the iPod on for the last stretch where I really tried to go as hard as possible. I ellipticaled the CRAP out of that thing! So after I hit 16 miles, I called it good because I. WAS. STARVING. Hungry little marathon trainer. I have never been so hungry during a workout before.
I'm calling it good at the 16, but plan to put in more quality time with mr. elliptical tomorrow and Thursday. Then try to run the hill (more on that later) on Thursday night after work with the girls. I'm having faith in my little body that she will carry me across the finish line with only one 20-miler under my belt!
