Long run 3:06:38  22.0 mi (8:29 / mi)
ahr:169 max:180 shoes: Blue Saucony Grid
Had a dreadful night's sleep but decided that I really really wanted to get the big one out of the way for the weekend so I could have a relaxing Sunday. So I tried the 22 miler anyway. I did it, but it was clear I was suffering and also that lying and in running late meant I hadn't eaten enough. By halfway I was just about on schedule but starting to suffer. By mile 12 it was obvious my target time was going to have to go out of the window. The biggest struggle was 13-15 miles, after a truck load of jelly babies at mile 14 I perked up a bit, but not a single step of this was easy. But I did it! These are the days that count right? Constant mental battle, which is kind of why I decided to do this stupid thing anyway.
