The Long Run that Almost Wasn't...


Monday, November 14, 2011

I was supposed to run my long run yesterday but due to my husbands grandfather being in the ICU I skipped my run to spend time with him. Family always comes first but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sad to give up my run. But I knew that as long as I got off of work on time tonight, I'd be able to get my run in. And I did.

I got off work on time (yay!) and ran yesterdays planned 7miler tonight. I actually ran 7.54 becuase I hit 7 miles in a dark section that I'm two chicken to walk by myself. Total time was 80:43 and average pace was 10:40. Long run is long and slow, just as god intended.

I stressed alot today during the hours leading up to my run that I wouldn't be able to that far. I've never run more then 6 miles before tonight. But not only did I run the 7 miles, I ran an additional half mile. I've never run that far before and I was so nervous that I wouldn't be able to but it really wasn't a problem. I took it slow and just ran at what ever pace felt comfortable. I don't know what I was so nervous about. Silly me.
