I can’t remember the last time I ran 7 miles. But I sure did today ! In a couple weeks I will be doing the length of runs that has always stopped me from achieving my marathon goals. Today’s run went really well. My pace was one I think I could have maintained for awhile longer. My fitness is improving as evidenced by being able to maintain pace even up some hills. I resisted the ever present urge to push it and so finished the run feeling like my legs still had more. This is a good way to finish the long slow runs I think. I managed to even have a full battery on my phone, so it didn’t go dead 2/3’s of the way into my run.
