Hi lovely fellow runners
I went out for my long run today which was meant to be 11K. We're visiting my home town so I got my husband to drop me out in the wilds of the New Forest so I could run back to base. It was pouring with rain, but quite warm.
I took a wrong turn on a cycle path and came out in a different place than I was expecting which meant I was a bit further away than expected.
The last 3K were just flowing, previous aches seemed to evaporate and my pace was good so when I got to 11K I decided just one more. I made 12K in 1hr19m. It was a great run and I felt I could have done more but don't want to risk injury.
I just love running longer distances. I find it preferable to shorter, faster runs. I think being in different places has helped, and running from place to place with a destination rather then a route. I'm going to have to be more inventive when I get home!
Have fun running everyone (I feel like a real runner now!!)
