11. Complete mileage for Sunday – 15.6 miles. It was gradual, but it is the very first time I have ever made myself operate more just after a race so I’m very pleased of myself!!

12. I considered I had in no way run more mileage ahead of or following a race but I just remembered I have!! A couple of yrs in the past I ran the Duxberry Fifty percent Marathon with Tina from @carrotsncake – she was schooling for Boston and wanted to operate 20 miles for her last extended operate.

We ran the more 7 miles before the 50 % marathon. I believe that’s the way to go – operate it ahead of if you have additional mileage. So I have completed that! I have additional more miles right before just not right after (which is 100% the way to go.)
