Yesterday I ran my longest stretch in 5 months…10 miles. Even though I’ve run further in the past, it was still hard.
It’s suppose to be.
For me, there are 3 stages to each of my long runs…
Stage 1. Why is this so hard? Should have trained more.
Stage 2. I could run like this for miles.
Stage 3. Why does this hurt so much? Am I almost there ?
It was a cool 53 degrees when I started out.
Not so nice for Dolores though who was riding her bike ahead of me. My fingers warmed up after 3 miles and easily broke a sweat around that same time. In all those miles, I only saw a lone frog and that was closer to the end. No bugs/animals were stirring.
I had a banana and plenty of water during the run and an apple afterwards.
It’s always a great feeling to know you just finished a long run.
What’s your long run like?
