Opinions differ. Guess it depends on where you are in your training. I sure remember days when a 6 mile run was a long one! I also remember when a 15 mile run was just a "chip shot!"
Well, today,the answer is simple! Today, a long run was only 13 miles! When I headed out this afternoon, I thought a long run would probably be 18-20 miles . . . but I was wrong!
The run felt great! I had a blast and felt really strong . . . but my new shorts started chafing me! Plus, I'm planning to do the Fall Lake Run next weekend . . . not sure what I'll do.
Marathon? Or 50K? Not sure. Definitely not the 50 miler! Then, the next weekend I'm doing the Uhwarrie 20 miler. (Got to admit I wish I had signed up for the 40 mile run.) So, I'm thinking either marathon or 50k next weekend, then the 20 mile run at Uhwarrie. Should be fun no matter what I do next weekend!
The day after Uhwarrie, I'm flying to Denver. Then, over to Vail to spend a few days with my daughter, Laurie. Can't wait!
The great predictor aka the 5k prep workout.
