Training: Long Sunday Run

With a 13 mile, very hilly run upcoming in one week’s time I decided to forego a 5k race that I’d planned to do, and head out (reluctantly) for a 10 mile run instead.

They say time on feet is more important in a long run than speed. So in an ideal world I’d have run for 90 minutes today at a steady pace. Didn’t happen. Can’t run slow! I did run 9.7 miles though, in 70 minutes and picked a route with some tough hills to prepare for next week. I then ran each of the hills as fast as I could to incorporate some resistance training.

An enjoyable run, through country lanes and perfect running weather again – not too hot, not too cold. Goldilocks weather.
