Run Log: 16 June 2010
LSDs (Long Slow Distance) runs are now a 3x/week habit I’ve been cultivating for more than a month now in preparation for the Milo Marathon this July 4. Today, I did 8.8 km of our usual route round the village by myself since Dave and Frank are not available. I thought I won’t last by my lonesome self but with a lot of encouragement from Simon LeBon (‘pulled my shirt off and pray’ – Election Day), Darryl Hall (‘we’re living in dream time, baby’) and Neil Tennant (‘you got no future, you got no past’ – West End Girls), I managed to survive and enjoyed it. It was slow, meditative and within my control – in pace, running style and background sounds. I’m hoping to put this training runs in my regular schedule (5:30 am T,W,Th) until August (for the PAU 65k) and September (for the CamSur Marathon). And on Sundays the long runs but that’s another looong article.
