On Sunday I ran 14 miles. Did you read that right?! I ran FOURTEEN miles. I have never run anything more than 13 miles before. It was an incredible experience. I ran the first 10 miles with a good friend. Then, I finished the last four miles on my own. I definitely appreciated having the company for the majority of the run. I was a little lonely after she left, but I still managed to finish! I even stayed around a 10 minute mile, which I was very happy with. There were a decent amount of hills along the way.
I did realize that I need to work on my fueling. I had a Clif shot, but I was not hydrated enough. I was planning on swinging by the running store to grab some water midway, but didn’t realize they weren’t open. I usually do my long runs on Saturday, so I did not realize they open later on Sundays. Oops!
The weather was beautiful. I wore capris and a very light weight shirt from Swirlgear. I probably could have worn shorts and short sleeves. It will take awhile to get used to warmer weather. I am so used to bundling up now!
Are you looking forward to warmer weather?
