Better Long Run
I am still in Pennsylvania. This afternoon I did the next long run on my training schedule. I was kind of dreading it after my horrible 8-mi run this past Saturday. However, I did 10.08 mi in 1:38:15, which is an average speed of 6.15 mph. On this run, I had reached 9 mi in a minute less time than I did 8 mi last Saturday! The whole run today only took me about 10 minutes longer for 2 extra miles. Today, my route was very flat. It was also about 10 deg F cooler, and the humidity was not as high. I also made a point to drink more the day before and this morning. So I think the overall combination of circumstances made this run much easier. It renewed my confidence in my training plan.
