Ten Miles

Just saying it causes a bit of excitement...or is it apprehension? Tomorrow's long run is ten miles. It will (again) set a record for distance. I want to go back to the 4run/1walk intervals but am a little worried that I can sustain that for ten miles. I want to find that inner strength to do it, but don't want to ignore any discomfort that might cause an injury.

I think there is a very fine line between pushing yourself beyond what you think you can do, and pushing yourself beyond your body's capabilities, causing an injury. I've not had a running injury since July, so I must have figured where that line is. I hope I pay attention to my body tomorrow and give it the right push. I'm excited about this long run. I love that sweaty, spent, feeling of accomplishing something you never thought possible. Ten Wish me luck.
