A Long 10 Miles…

IMG_5430-0.JPG

Today I spent the greater portion of my morning doing what relaxes me…running.

I have been spending the last three Sundays trying to do long runs. I wanted to really push myself and see how much could my body take.

I still have not made my mind up if I want to run a 10k or just skip it altogether and go for the half marathon. I know I can do it but I just want to be able to say I have completed everything.

The first run I ran 7.62 miles. The second I ran 8 miles. Today I pushed myself and ran 10 miles.

The first couple of miles were easy. It was when I got to mile 7 that I started to feel it in my legs and hips. By the time I reached 10 I was done but still had to walk home. It was a big accomplishment and the longest run I have do to date. Next Sunday I am going for the whole 13.

Wish me luck!
