Saturday’s Long Run

I ran my longest run to date last Saturday and it felt awesome. I went for 17-k in about 1 hour and 40 minutes. I had only planned to go about 15-k but I wasn’t paying too much attention to my Garmin and before I knew it I was committed. By the time I got back home I was just past the 17-k mark. It felt awesome.

I have no doubts that I could have run farther and completed a half-marathon distance. My decision to sign up for the marathon is a good one as this distance will really stretch me. However, I am getting ahead of myself here. I just need to focus on staying healthy for the half-marathon in February and THEN focus on the marathon. One step at a time!!
