10 MILES! August 29, 2010

yesterday, i did my first ever long run of 10 miles! i am so excited that i’ve made it to that milestone! i got up early to make sure i was out as soon as it was light enough. the morning turned out overcast, perfect running weather because it kept the temp down around 70-72 degrees. it was so nice out! i ran most of it very slow and easy, wisely pacing myself for such a long distance. i know that the half-marathon is going to seem so much more difficult because i’ll be pushing myself harder on that day, but my slow long run felt great yesterday! by the last mile, i was so excited and felt so strong that i picked up speed and finished like i will on race day, leaving it all out on the road. after my run tomorrow, i will have surpassed 60 miles for the month, also a new record. i have never run that many miles in a month. and i will probably beat that monthly total for my september miles. although i’ve been running for several years now, i finally truly feel like a serious runner.
