If I know I have 13 more miles to go, how fast would I be running?
Not fast at all! I slowed it down and it worked! I read somewhere on the Internet that your pace should allow you to hold a conversation with someone. While running I was definitely able to do that so I knew I was doing ok.
This was a VERY good run. I was able to complete the entire training session and wasn't exhausted when I finished. My legs were stiff and my stomach cramped up (whats this all about?!) but other than that, I was good!
Oh, my phone died in the last 10mins of my last run. I know I said before I didn't need music and would try to train without it, but I did and it's ok. I can't say it gets me through, but sometimes it takes my mind off the time. Usually I would use a dead battery as an excuse to stop but I kept going. Again, gotta be ready to run in non-perfect conditions!
So yeah. Good run yesterday. Am actually looking forward to Friday's run. Wait. Did I just say that? I did!!
