Phew… that was hard. I had aimed to do 10.8 miles (after running a marathon yesterday) but didn’t have a route so ended up doing 11.25 miles. If I was really OCD I would have rounded it up again or definitely stopped at 10.8 miles… but I figured I got to 1,300 miles this year and I wasn’t going to stop at 10.8 miles when I was half a mile from home.
Here’s me… you wouldn’t miss me anyway. 😉
It was a pretty tough run. My legs were tired and not really responding…but they knew how to go one after the other so that’s all that really matters.
I guess that’s what endurance is all about. Going that extra mile when your legs are like jelly and you know it’s hard. I’m sure I’ll see a bit more of this in 2012.
Anyway, I’ve done my 1,300 miles for 2011… a bit of a push at the end, and I wished I’d maybe realised in early December so that I didn’t need to make a mad dash for the finish today. 🙂 Nevermind. Challenge complete!
What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, eh? 😉
Have a good New Year and I’ll see you in 2012!
