Long(er) Run

RR: 5.25 miles, 576 calories. In my running experience (what is minimal), this would be considered a long run in MY books. But, not to most. I still consider it a LONG run, which is longer than my usual 3 or 4 miles. I hope to increase my mileage over the next few months to a point where 5 miles won't be long runs to me anymore!

NOVEMBER Mileage: 43.11 miles

____________________________________

Well, I am looking forward to the weekend. I have quite a bit of paperwork to do this weekend, on top of working most of Saturday, so I know I will be very busy. But, I am thrilled because there is only 1 week of classes left! 1 WEEK PEOPLE!

Another thing I am going to do this weekend is work on planning my sister's bachelorette party. We're hoping to rent a cabin in February and do some relaxing, cross-country skiing, snow-mobiling, etc. It will be wonderful! So, my first task is to nail down a cabin before it gets to late. Then I will leave planning the details until Christmas Break when I have time to do it and make it exciting!

I can tell the week is coming to an end. I am tired. I am ready for friday. And my upper body aches from carrying my backpack, purse, lunch bag, and duffel bag across a parking lot covered by ice. Just a little tense. On that note, I am going to do something different tonight and crawl into bed now and finish watching the Detroit/Miami game...rooting all the way for THE HEAT!

Be Strong...Live Life....

Don't feel bad about the legth of your long runs. The best thing you can do for your body is to build up your mileage slowly. You'll get to where you feel like you can run forever, not to worry!

I actually ran my first 5.2 mile run in a very long time.. I wanted to give up around the the third mile but after the 4th, it got a bit easier..

I know 53 minutes is not a good time, but I'm trying to get to a comfortable 5 mile run before I go further.

I am with you on increasing distance. I am so comfortable in my 3/4 mile runs, I really need to up it. So pretty soon I will join you for 5.

Great job on your run!

I use to think a 30 minute run was impossible!!! You'll get there :-)

Nice job on the long run! To me that is long - i haven't ran more than 3.5 since the marathon so I'm impressed.

5.25 miles counts as a long run in my books.

I consider that a long run :-) Long runs are supposed to be slow, like 2 minutes per mile slower. You are going to be up to half marathon distance before you know it. Nice mileage for the month by the way.
