Hello, this is my first progress report here in the marathon community. The myasics program has now moved into some longer runs so today was my longest run yet at 14.5 km. My longest before this was 11.5km, so it was a bit daunting. But I figured it wouldn’t be so bad as these were to be slower runs between 7:30 and 8 min/km. Slower than the 7k runs I’ve been doing all week. So I set my pace alarm accordingly. The first three km were a little painful, then the legs felt better. My hands were feeling like ice though. My gloves just weren’t meant for late November in Canada I guess 😊. I wasn't really feeling it today and I almost convinced myself to stop around 5 times, but kept going and the last 3k were killers as it was getting dark and colder, but I did it. Its a short distance compared with what most people here are doing I know, but for me it was a long, cold run. Got home, stretched and grabbed a scalding hot shower. Felt much better and am feeling good now too. Not too sore. Still cannot believe I was on the couch in April of this year! So thankful to have found so many experienced, generous runners on these boards. I’ve learned so much just reading other’s posts.
