Endurance running is along time goal for me.
Last Saturday saw me completing my longest ever distance run, and for the first time ever it was a test of my endurance. I’ve completed a number of road half marathons in the past along with a few trail ten milers, but this “half” was different. At 16 miles long I had been warned that the first 8 were hard and the second 8 were painful, but I’m used to running on dartmoor so felt I’d manage the challenge!
This wasn’t just a fun event fo me though.
Oh no! Back in July I had been tasked with completing a marathon by the end of February. So I signed up to this jolly jaunt with the thought that if I didn’t complete it I would run a road marathon at the end of February. If, IF, I actually managed it I would sign up for the trail equivalent 9 weeks later.
SO… You see the medal??
Guess which option I’m now signed up for! That’s my next true test of endurance.
It’s a good job I’m a masochist!!
Come and see what everyone else is up to for #Boobday
