Run, jog, walk, crawl. Just make sure you get the mileage in.
In the past I have fallen short on my long runs. Giving up. Exhausted. Can’t go anymore.
Well enough of that. If you have to, just walk, OK? It’s still time and miles on your feet. It counts.
1 hour, 27 minutes, 26 seconds
(5 miles with run group in my Asics, 2 miles “barefoot” in my Vibram FiveFingers)
Before the first run…
Then I came home, rinsed the sweat crystals off, drank a recovery drink, mustered some guts and went out again.
Last year I would have said “It’s too hot.”
Last year I would have said “My legs are tired.”
This year I said “Make sure you get the mileage in.” Glad I did.
