So, this time last week, I was happy that i'd run 1.5 miles after 3 weeks of nothing and looking forward to trying out a 2 miler the next day.
|This was Me today, |
and will be me forever most likley!
Fast forward a week and I have pretty much caught up! Did two and a half out of three of the training runs in the week and managed a whole 10 miles today for my long run!
This is something I really didn't envisage happening at all. I embarked on the long run with a 10 mile goal but would have been happy with 8 seeing as I've not done a long run for a while. Unsurprisingly, I went slower than a three-toed sloth in a tree covered in treacle, but I did it - I went the distance without falling over/collapsing/requiring medical attention.
Saying that, i'm sure I will be sore in the morning but it has been reassuring that all the previous training hasn't gone entirely to waste and I can get back on track for the 15 mile run scheduled for next week. Now that will be slightly trickier because I need to arrange it around a weekend of work but its not impossible...just need a lot of inspiration to get there...
