Got up at around 7:20 and headed out for what was suppose to be 8.0 miles. I ended up doing 8.5 in 1:31. I did 6 miles in ***just***over 1 hour it took a lot out of me to get that last 2.5 miles.
Felt fine--lung wise, my legs started to get achy...groin area and my left knee was hurting slightly at 7 miles...probably cause I slowed my pace so much. The blisters on my toes are really becoming a pain in my @ss. I've bought wicking socks hoping that would help, it hasn't. I'll go back tomorrow and try a different brand of wicking socks and hope it will help. My gut is telling me it's my new shoes. I never had problems with my old shoes...BUT I also wasn't running this many miles....I don't know.
Happy though that I got my long run after having almost the last week off due to being gone on a vacation. I leave again with some friends on Friday, just for a weekend scrapbooking thing but I will most likely lose 2 days of running this coming wkend. I have a good start to the week though and that makes me happy
