As I told you in my post yesterday I had planned to run 10 miles today. I didn't......
I ran 11!!!!!!!!
Even more impressive, to me anyways, is the time I finished, 1hr 28min!
The run was amazing. It was a beautiful Buffalo night-- temperatures in the 60's, a steady breeze, sunny, and the smell of spring flowers filled the air.
At mile 9-- I felt a sense of utter euphoria! I have heard other runners describe the moment-- When they feel almost detached from their bodies-- floating-- (I swear I did not smoke anything wacky before hand!). It really was a cool feeling-- I felt incredible-- and I definitely had it in me to go for 3 more miles. I chose not to because I really want my upcoming half marathon to be the very first time I run 13.1 miles. I want that day to mean something-- after all -- it is the reason for all of this work.
Today after work-- 5 Miles, easy
Weds: 3miles- 5k pace, 3 easy
Thursday: 7 easy
Saturday: 5 miles easy
Running Is So Much More Than Running
