So, I’m a week into my second run at the Runner’s World Run Streak, and I’m completely loving it.
Tonight – late leaving the office (Story of my life), but had a transcendent run. Yesterday was an almost cheating long run – it was
- long – 6.7 miles, pretty reasonable
- slow – Walked the first and last miles; Galloway’d the rest
- distance – Having run marathons, it’s tough to remember how amazing it is the first time one runs for a mile; or three; or five, or for an hour…
Tonight, I thought I would bang out the 2.4 miles I needed to keep pace with 500 miles for the year. But, when I got to the turnaround, I realized that the legs felt good, and extended for another .3 miles for the evening.
Chunked out 1200m in the pool after the run. More LSD; felt great to be swimming until the close with fewer and fewer folks in the pool.
