Holy crap I'm tired! I just banged out a 13 miler and it's the longest run I've done in months. It hurts right now, but I couldn't be happier or more satisfied. Here are a couple key points from my run today:
1. My longest run in awhile.
2. I averaged 7:56/mile, 15-20 seconds faster per mile than last week's 10 miler.
3. I hit my time/miles limit with no fuel/hydration. no more long runs without snacks and drinks!
4. My hill work is coming back as well.
5. I'm beat.
I have two runs in this week, totaling 17.5 miles. Tomorrow, maybe a 4-5 miler if I feel good, or a little speed on the bike to recover. Thursday, not normally a run day, I am going to try to squeeze something in. Friday, my normal 5-6 miles.
I'm getting there.
