1 - I ran with Kristin, who I haven't seen in something like a month because of scheduling issues. I needed that!
2 - It was my first long run since A1A. We did ten miles, and I was so glad to get into double digits. And I was relieved, too, because we have this half on March 20 and I haven't gone longer than four miles since the marathon, so I was beginning to wonder if I'd be able to make it!
We kept a fairly consistent pace, but since I turned off my auto-pause, our stop for fuel at mile 5 factored in here. Our moving pace was around 11:30.
Anyway, this week I ran a whopping 14 miles all told, but at least now I know I still have long runs in me.
|By the end of the run it was only 61 out, but we both felt warm. I'm not going to be happy when spring officially arrives.|
What was a highlight of your weekend?
What distance do you have to cover when training to set your mind at ease?
Nice job on your run! When I am training I need to definitely run a 20 or 21 miler for a marathon in order to feel confident.ReplyDelete
During my run this afternoon it was a HOT 71 degrees out... I felt like I was melting and had to carry a bottle of watered down Gatorade.ReplyDelete
There's no such thing as "only" a half but I totally understand that sentiment. Now that I have experienced a marathon, anything under 20 miles just doesn't seem like that big of a deal for me to do... lol!!
Can't wait to hear about your next race. :)
Ha ha! That last graphic is too true. Sounds like a great run. I know my running buddies always make long runs fun!ReplyDelete
Well now that you got 10 in you should feel very confident for your half! I think 10 would be enough for me to know I could cover the distance of a half marathon.ReplyDelete
I love that ecard!!!!! It's sooooo true! I've said "it's only a half" before too lolReplyDelete
My mind plays tricks on me as well (esp after the marathon). The ecard is so true!ReplyDelete
