I´m still fighting against my body when it comes to waking up early. I never thought it would be this difficult when the “cold” days arrived.
This Saturday I left home for my long run. As I won´t race another half marathon soon, I decided to run 1h30 instead of the 2hs. By the 3rd km I was felling heavy, thinking seriously about going home and returning later that day to complete the session. It felt it would never end! But I kept telling me this feeling would go away and I had to continue, no matter what.
So I did and after a few kms I was better already and found the energy I needed to complete the long run feeling great. Sometimes you need to push yourself harder to achieve what you want. I´m glad I did it.
May 7th – 1h30 long run – day 05
Time: 96min // Dist: 16km //AHR:155 // Temp: 15-19C
