First 10 mile run! (Read 722 times)

JayMF


    Well, I'm pretty pleased with myself. I got up and did my first 10 mile run this morning. I have to say it felt pretty good. I didn't break any land-speed records, but I felt like I could run farther at the finish - even if my legs were kind of tired. I did need a nap in the afternoon, though. A few months ago something like that was only possible in the abstract - I had an idea that maybe I could make myself run that far if I worked at it long and hard enough. Actually doing it feels kind of amazing.


    Just Be

              256 miles in July but never a 20 miler. Shocked

              Run until the trail runs out.

It makes posting milestones like this fun ! This was a try out to see if I should work up to A half marathon training plan ,I think I'm going for it ! thanks to all here for the kind words and for all the things I've learned from reading the different threads ! course the joke thread is getting adictive ! HA!
