Long Run Saturday
The marathon schedule had Saturday 5 miles, Sunday 15 miles. Since we are going to get hit by snow on Sunday, I opted to run 15 miles for Saturday. Saturday was a nice 33 degree weather day to run. I drove to Cambridge to run my Saturday miles. My fault was not properly planning out my route. I knew running around the Charles river would be at least 7 to 8 miles. But I didn’t take into account where I would make up the other 5 to 6 miles. I ended up with 11.42 miles for Saturday.
I didn’t want to keep running in a circle or run aimlessly to reach 15 miles. I’ve learned that I need to better map out my route for long runs and to have water/food on hand when I do. End of week two, still learning and growing
