I’ve written about my dislike of long runs before. I often dread them, sometimes find them boring and regularly have a problem finding time to fit them in (I’m not a morning person). But they are a necessary evil if I want to improve my running at any distance. So whether it’s my laziness, impatience to get a run over or whatever I have to get over it and run some log runs.
I’m half way through Juneathon and my longest run so far is 10K and I’ve not run more than that since a half marathon in April. Time to get on with it I think! So full of mojo from a good run yesterday I got out of the door easily today. It also helped that sensibly I was only planning to run a ‘short long run’ too build up my mileage gradually and avoid injury. (I guess the definition of long run, short long run, long long run, etc, all depends on whether you are a sprinter or ultra runner.)
Juneathon day 16. 8.4 miles run, a good one. Yes I enjoyed it!
