Mental Health Run

Longest Run

I’m back! I’ve still been running my training runs as per the plan, just that I haven’t had the time to write about each of them.

Today however, I reached a personal milestone. It really put my struggle in perspective.

Today also marks my longest run to date. Ever. Well… I’ve been logging my runs in RunKeeper since 2013. So pretty much ever!

I ran for a total of 30 minutes, without stopping (except for stretching the calf out at the 3km mark…)

I ran a total of 4.36km. I’m quite proud.

However, its about perspective. Yes – it’s my longest run. But its not even HALF the distance that I need to run in the final race.

Good thing it’s a “marathon” not a sprint!

Today marks 9 weeks until the 10km run.

Eeek!
