RECAP: 15 miles. Yeah, it hurt a little at the end, but generally, I felt pretty good. I have run well over a hundred mile in Prospect Park, from my first couple of miles in training for my first marathon to these fifteen. It felt great to do a strong long run there on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon.
In other news, I’m getting closer and closer to my goal of working out at least ten hours a week. I’m trying to be good about upping my mileage at a reasonable pace, so I am getting in the extra exercise time on either the bike or by swimming. I should be using the erg more, cause it is a great work out, but I just can’t face the thing recently. But, while total workout time is improving, I am still floundering a little on upping the mileage of the daily runs. I think this week, since I plan to keep the long run constant at 15 miles, it should be easy to increase the mid week run to five miles.
Anyway, here are the numbers.
