I was able to finish this week’s mileage early in the morning. I did this partly to avoid the heat and afternoon and evening storms. Mentally it was a bit difficult getting motivated for the long run, especially since it has been a few weeks since I ran a longer distance.
Today’s run was 17.01 miles in 2:30:05. After the mathematic debacle during yesterday’s run, I was sure not to underestimate today’s distance. 17 miles was plenty. Here’s the totals for the week: 61.231 miles in 8:30:45. This week marks my first week over 60 miles. I’m looking forward to a 65 mile week next week.
