Running: ~10 miles (4.35 trail + 5.8 road)
I’m writing this log entry after laying on the floor and drinking half a beer. Needed a delicious pain reliever after running the farthest I’ve ever ran in my life.
This wasn’t particularly challenging on the lungs as I didn’t push the pace much, today was more about surviving the distance.
I had my fiancee drop me off at a trail head, then took the trails north for a while, and when I reached the northern end of the nature preserve took the road back home.
Had a few short stops on the hike to gather my bearings and do a tick check after tall grass, and a couple spots where it was steep enough to become a brisk hike, but mostly kept moving. No stopping once I got to the pavement.
I’ll never love running, much the same way I’ll never actually love lifting, but I get the appeal it has to some folks.
