Ten Miles

I ran a full ten miles today. That’s the first time since I was running cross-country in high school. I amazed myself with the consistency of my pace. At three miles I was on pace, at six miles I was on pace, at nine miles I was still on pace. The amazing thing about it was that I had not run more than six miles prior to today. I had done some workouts on my bike that were equal to at least eight miles running, but biking and running are very different in the way they affect your energy so I was surprised that I could be so steady. That bodes well for me as my workouts get progressively longer in preparation for the marathon in July.
