After a week of not sticking to my mid-week plan, I rounded out the week out with a scheduled 12-mile long run.
I started the run with my Saturday running partner who ran with me for the first eight. She’s coaching a novice half team for the Richmond Half Marathon in November (the race I’m training for). Since they are tackling 10-miles this morning, she didn’t want to do the full 12, and I cannot blame her for that. Kudos for her doing an eight and 10 back-to-back.
It was a drizzly morning and we got soaked, but after a quick goodbye, I hit the last four miles feeling good. It was a slow run, but my legs felt good tackling that distance. I needed this after a week of lower mileage and cutting a few runs short.
Mileage to date and week 10 mileage below. I’lll 800 miles for the year this week!
