I feel fantastic. This is where I'm supposed to be.
Did 8 mile at tempo pace today. Easy as anything. I don't even feel like I've been anywhere.
Now my mid week runs are generally 7-10 miles and long ones between 15-20.
This really is my kind of running. I dont like training for halves or 10k's. Makes me feel like I'm not doing enough, or I'm not fast enough or that I'm struggling too much.
Marathon training is me. I can just see myself taking the step further now for ultras, time permitting. I don't like running a little bit and very fast. I like taking whole day - just taking my time, stopping to enjoy the scenery, say hello to horses, sheep, cows.... and continue running.
I could be on my feet all day long.
I want more. I want more miles and more time please.
Some people keep asking me, what is it about distance running, isn't it boring. No it's not. It's the best thing in the world and I cannot even begin to explain it to someone who's never done a 20 mile run. The struggle, the severity of exhaustion, and the primal feeling of being of human, running because we were meant to run.
How can you explain something so simple. Can I say anything other than... just try it and see.
How is everyone?
