|Someone asked about our bridge's specs. It's about .9 miles from end-to-end and the elevation is +16 feet.|
Ask me how I feel in a few more weeks.
After capping my runs at 10 miles (and usually going 8 or 9), seeing 13-15 mile runs on my calendar is a bit daunting. The first few long runs haven't been mentally easy; a big part of me hasn't been motivated to run that far, and I've had to rearrange my mindset so I can be mentally ready for running long again!
|Yes, this. If I'm being honest, while mentally running long has been daunting, but physically it hasn't been that difficult. Yet.|
Anyway, we have our plan totally mapped out. We've planned a 15-miler because Elizabeth really wants to "beat" her brother's longest distance (a half) and 15 sounds like a "good distance" to her. That means it will be the farthest I've ever run during half training; I'm interested to see the results.
|We sketched out our long runs one day during lunch. Elizabeth said her students' reactions to the mileage were hilarious.|
Then again, seeing Elizabeth's paces lately, we may gun for a PR. Who knows! I know I'm "helping" her train for her first half, but really I'm just helping her run through her boredom. She's more than capable of running a half without my guidance! I'm just along for the ride.
Are you training for anything right now?
Do you like to create your own training plans?
Have you ever mentored/trained a running buddy in a distance that's new to them?
