This morning, I completed an entirely different route.
This morning, I stayed in the low grounds...... and left the hills for someone else.
I ran a consistent pace..... within 10 seconds of each kilometer..... i am pleased...... I pushed hard through the last 3km, when I wanted to quit.... when it really hurt to move, let alone run..... and then I froze on my recovery home. *cold outside, sweating, clothes wet, no one with a space blanket to greet me at the finish*
But the long run is finished..... 14.5km.... the longest I have traveled since the marathon.
Tomorrow, I am looking forward to the short run.... and easy 4 miles.
