Hi friends, I'm still running along. Running along a very full and busy life and fitting in the running of miles as well.
16 miles was hard. Well, my route was hard. Mostly uphill the first half, which exhausted me for the second half. I may not run that route again for a long run, but it was convenient because I didn't have to drive to the starting point. I survived though and ran it in 3 hours.
My schedule calls for 18 miles this weekend, but I have an all day commitment Friday and Saturday so 18 isn't going to happen this weekend. I'm okay with that though because I desperately need new shoes after the weekend I'll be able to get some! I think my next long run will be much better having new shoes.
I'm still going to try to get some decent miles in over a few days this weekend, it just won't all be at once.
Keep on running friends!
