I did it, I did it, I did it - yeah

In case you don't understand my title at the end of all Dora cartoons they do a song that goes:

we did it
we did it
we did it
yeah

we did it
we did it
horray

That is what I feel like shouting from the roof tops since I completed my longest run to date 8 miles last night.  Time: 1:29:20 which put me at an 11:08 pace which is pretty quick for me. I am looking forward to running this distance outside to see if I can keep that pace.

Since my right knee has been bothering me a little as soon as I was done I applied a small ice pack to the area while I stretched. I am happy to say that this morning I have no knee pain! I am going to continue to ice right after a run to keep it from turning into an injury.  I am still waiting for the Active Wrap to arrive that I won in a giveaway, I can't wait to try that.

The plan for today is cross training - if my knee feels okay this evening I am going to do Jillian Michael's Shred it with weights DVD. That's always a fun one that doesn't take up a lot of time.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway below - Hand Stamped Key Chain from Hand Stamped by Lorelei winner will be selected tomorrow 9AM PST.

  1. With four kids, Dora and I are familiar. ;) Congratulations on the eight miles! Believe it or not, it gets easier the further you go...you know you can do eight, so nine or ten will be no big whoop, and so on.

  2. Congrats on the 8 miles!!! How exciting! I just did my firs 10 mile run this past Sunday, and hitting that milestone felt amazing...never mind the injury that I ended up with :-(

  3. Wauw! Fantastic and congrats on your first 8 miler!

    I need to think about buying ice packs too since my last long run gave me a lot of trouble till 3 days after it.
