This morning I headed out for my long run, and as a cutback week I had 13 miles planned. After a few miles, I caught up with two older guys, also doing their long run. As they asked how long I had today, I said it.
"ONLY 13 miles."
Ugh. I used to hate that! People who say casually, "Just a 10 mile run this morning," or "Only 40 miles this week." But I guess marathon training can give you a skewed perspective on what long is, huh?
Anyway, beautiful temperatures in the 50s and low 60s this morning, and I loved it.
Had to run the whole 13.1 just to say it was a half marathon, and came in at 9:39 pace overall. I'll take it!
And now I'm headed to Nashville for a blogger meet-up!
Any long runs today? Brag away!
What are your weekend plans?
