Running the long runs

As a busy woman, I have to run the long runs real early in the morning on Saturdays before I have to taxi kids to birthday parties or some sort of practice.  That means I get up on essentially my only sleep in day in the 4am or 5am hour.  I’ve been doing these “long runs” for the last 15 weeks of this half marathon training.  This is my last long run before the big race and I’m excited that it’s the last.

 

I know some folks love the long runs but I am not sure if I do and it’s not because of the run but the time needed.  It will take me awhile 2.5 hours to get it done.

    Hey, linked to you from your comment on Determined to be Fit. The long runs take a lot of mental strength when you run at pace that makes the run take a lot of time. I am in the same boat. I hope you do great on your half! Sounds like you are doing great with your training.
