Saturday I ran 10 miles.
They weren’t the best 10 miles, but they weren’t the worst either.
I’m not going to lie and say that my marathon training so far has been ideal. I’m only 3 weeks in, but the worry is in the back of my mind. Just a little, but it’s there.
I remember when I was training for the Glass City Half Marathon and I rocked all my weekday runs and sucked at my weekend long runs. Seems to be a common theme this time around, too. Luckily I have the reminder that everything magically came together the day of Glass City and I PR’d the crap out of that race. That’s the one thing keeping me grounded when a have a “not so great” long run right now.
So instead of freaking out about it, I headed out to spend a day in the sun with good friends. Friends who don’t care that I’m having belly “troubles” from my run, that I’m wearing compression socks and Sperry’s (together), or that I’m lazy our entire visit and let them cook for me.
I think this training cycle is going to be A-OK. My mind is in a good place and while that little bit of worry is still there, it hasn’t taken over (at least not yet!). And with good friends like these, I think I’m gonna be ok.
What do you like to do after your long run? Sleep? Drink? Shop? Dance?
