TODAY IS MY HUBBYS AND MY 12th ANNIVERSARY AND TO CELEBRATE I RAN A 12 MILE LONG RUN:)!!! & MY HALF MARATHON IS ONLY 1 WEEK AWAY

Well, I know I ran 10 miles on Friday, but since today was hubby's and my 12th anniversary, I decided to run my long run today, and do 12 miles:) Yesterday was a rest day, and legs/muscles feel awesome. So I hit the gym and took it nice and slow at 6.0 and 1% incline on the treadmill.

Your all probably wondering why I'm running on the TM instead of outside. The weather hasn't been so great, and I wanted to get my runs in!! Plus, it's the only time I get to watch 'my' TV shows, and the time just flies by and I like it. Don't get me wrong, I love running outside too, but I like to mix it up. I love that I can just set the machine to a pace and go. Helps to build those running muscles, and since my runs lately have been few and far between, I feel that at least running on the TM is preparing my body better for my race. And I believe there is no better place to build those base building miles than on the treadmill. And once again, my HR stayed below 140 with cardiac drift the whole 12 miles:)

Well, tomorrow BR411 and I will run 4 miles outside together after we drop kids off at the bus, and then we're finally going to celebrate our anniversary at our favorite restaurant on the water, eating sushi:)

Happy anniversary! Sounds like the TM is definitely working for both of you-- it is no nice to have that option. Enjoy your sushi!

Happy Anniversary! Makes sense, 12 years being married equals a 12 mile run! Should be interesting during your 40th anniversary. Since you're going to a sushi restaurant, doesn't 12 equal a free eggroll? Doris Day would be proud!

I must admit that I never thought to celebrate a special occasion with a run. But why not! Running is just fun!

Most of the summer, I have avoided the TM. But I have to agree that it is a great way to watch/catch up on movies or TV... I even did an 18 mileron the TM during torrential rains outside. BTW... That is enough time for "The Goonies" and "The Scorpion King!"

Congratulations to both of you!!!
