Peter and I kept it simple this New Year's Eve.
We stayed in, chilled in our pajamas and watched movies.
It would appear I was more ecstatic about the new year than Peter. So ecstatic, I might add, that I thought it would be appropriate that I start the new year out with a 15 long run.
I couldn't tell you how this run was slower than my 20 miler finished on Saturday, but I finished! It was truly a challenge for me. Nearing the 10 mile mark, my stomach decided that it had enough. I had to periodically stop until the acid settled, but I pushed through to finish.
It didn't help that I was tossed around by the wind. It was as if I was running against it the entire time! It was exhausting! Yet, it wasn't such a bad looking day on the C&O.
Over the next week, I plan on taking it down a notch. I will consider it a taper before the half marathon next Saturday in Walt Disney World. I don't feel that I truly need to taper as I don't think I will be entirely competitive in this race. This will be more of a fun run for me! I will be more concerned about getting pictures with Mickey or Ariel. Still, cutting back on mileage over the next week will ensure that I won't injure myself and ruin this entire experience.
Anyway, I hope you all had a safe and happy New Year celebration and are looking forward to the next 365 days of your life! Make the best of each day!
