I agree, running is meant to be enjoyed. However there are those days…when…especially in the last mile and a quarter, you just endure. Today was one of those days. I was scheduled for a long run. It was needed. The first couple miles were ok, but I wasn’t really enjoying it. After mile three things really started to pull together at least until mile 8 – the plan was 10 miles, which I completed, it was that the last mile was tough, but tough is what makes you a better runner. If all goes well, I should be able to hit my goal of 100 miles this month. The first time since November. May has been a good month for running and I feel like things are going much better – not the way I want – but better than the last couple of months. But then again, that is why I press on!
