Yesterday morning was a glorious Saturday and I did not have to hear the beep of an alarm. But at 6:10 am my body was not going back to sleep. So after a leisurely breakfast, and collecting the items necessary for my run, I drove to the Duluth Rose Garden to start my 10 mile run. Give that last weeks 9 mile run took just under 2 hours, I decided to set a goal with some cushion, and hoped to finished in 2 and a half hours. I have enough stress in my life that I didn’t need to have my long run also stressing me out.
On Wednesday I had the pleasure of running with a friend who told me that she is currently trying to add endurance to her runs by taking less walking breaks. That day we made it to the 2 mile mark before taking a break. Today I was able to wait until the 5k mark!
With that being said, here’s a little breakdown of my last 3 long runs.
|10 Mile||9 Mile||8 Mile|
See that beautiful improvement!! I am very happy to see that I don’t have a 13 minute mile during the 10 mile run. However I would like to work towards some negative splits (which if you aren’t a runner is where as your mileage increases the time per mile decreases).
