Yesterday, my Apple Watch and health app took a beating: 40,000+ steps, beat my movement goal by 387%. And did the same with my exercise goal by 943%. I wanted to see it hit 1000%, but I no longer had that energy.
I also ran the most I ever have. The first 9 miles were a breeze, at least for me. Trust me, most were still beating me. The next 5 were ok. The last 2.5 killed me. Clearly, not literally.
Mind you, are group was only about 18 and at least 10 of them opted for the shorter 8 mile run. I went with 18. I only came in before three others............but the important thing was that I came in......and upright.
The shorter run group had left by this time, so I made sure to stay until the other three returned and congratulated them on their accomplishment.........because it indeed was. One of them got into a car that had a 26.2 sticker,, so she was experienced, but for myself and the other two, this was farthest we had ever gone.
I eventually got in my car, and while I had water and some Nuun hydration tablets, I needed caffeine. So off the Starbucks I went for black tea, iced.
While waiting, I just sat there watching the seismic activity going on below my skin. It was fascinating and a little disturbing all at the same time.
I was dead tired after all that activity, but was unable to nap and had been drinking water like crazy all day with very little pee.
I predict a night of full sleep. At some point.
