It was THAT run

114 0011 224x300 It was THAT run

Feeling great Saturday night after my 16.5

I told you last week that I had some anxiety about Saturday’s planned 16-miler. Turns out that anxiety was completely unfounded, because Saturday’s run was:

  • The one where the miles just flew by
  • The one where you feel efficient
  • The one where that hill you hate wasn’t such a big deal
  • The one where you laugh with friends for more than two hours
  • The one where you have an extra gear in the last mile
  • The one where you feel invincible
  • The one where you know–you are back!

How was your weekend long run?

    Yay! I’m glad you had such an awesome run! Those are truly THE BEST ones to have!

    “The one where you know–you are back!” <—– That's the run I'm waiting for, but I'm sure it's a few weeks off.

    I ran 9 yesterday. Oh it was good! Good weather, good book. Legs were strong. The hill was still a hill and an awful one, but I just took it slower. I only stopped twice – once at home to go #2 LOL and once at a train because I had no other choice. :) I’m proud of that run because when I’ve been on the treadmill it’s been SO hard to go more than one mile without walking. :S The last 2 treadmill runs I’ve forced myself to not walk…it plays such a mental game on me.

    I to had an amazing run. After 4 mile into it my legs just kick in to a great rhythm and it seemed so effortless. I wish all my runs could feel like that. One of my best runs. The weather here this year has been amazing to. I wish we had weather like this all year round. I am loving not having to get on the treadmill much this winter. Thanks also for a great running partner. So happy you are back to doing what you love girl.

    Hurray! :) Very happy for you.

    I had no run this weekend, which is great training for the 50K in April. Sigh. But what I did have was a FANTASTIC group mountain bike ride/BBQ. Well worth skipping Saturday’s run, even if it had me worn out all day Sunday, too. I did manage to squeeze in 5 miles today, and training officially starts next Monday, so then I”m going to have to lose the excuses and RUN.

    Yay! Congrats on an awesome run! I love when something that initially seems really daunting turns out to be no big deal, or better, is completely enjoyable.
