Made you look! Actually my LSD is Sunday (Long… Slow… Distance…)
I am going to take today off. I had to re-arrange my schedule a bit when I got hurt last weekend and wanted to test my wheels a bit so I ran 4 days straight and my legs are a little tired. A day off today and a light run tomorrow should have me ready for my longest run yet of 14 miles on Sunday.
My long runs used to be something I approached with a lot of self doubt and trepidation. But once I cleared 10 miles, something changed. Now I look forward to them. And the longer the run, the more curious I am about it. I “want” to run big distances. It’s almost like I am searching for my limits. I was so surprised that I was able to run again, and then run a little further, and then run a little faster than I ever thought possible, that now I wonder just how far I can go. I guess it’s a bit of self discovery (kinda late in life… I know…).
