Isn’t it funny how 10 miles feels short at the end of a training cycle, but can seem so long just a few weeks later? Here we are two weeks post-race and I wanted to put in a long-ish run over the weekend. When going from a spring to fall marathon, there’s not a whole lot of time between training cycles since the races are 4-5 months apart as opposed to 6-7 months from a fall to spring marathon. Since training will start again in no time, I knew I couldn’t slack off on the distance for much longer.
I decided I’d like to run about 10 miles, but it just seemed soooo far. I wasn’t feeling too enthusiastic about it on Saturday morning… luckily hubs was coming with me and I knew I just had to suck it up and I’d
probably definitely feel better if I did it.
Anyway, we headed out Saturday morning for this looooong run. We went to our favourite spot and I was immediately more enthused about the run once we got started on those familiar trails.
