13 Very Soggy Miles - But What A View

In the past, I have always driven into the Linglestown area to run. But with running 6 days a week, I just didn't want to spend 40 minutes (round trip) in driving. Honestly, I need the sleep at this point. So I've been discovering places to run around where I live. Thanks to some local peeps here in Dauphin, I'm exploring the area. Everywhere I run, there are pretty much hills, but I'm finding it's very pretty. And I'm enjoying running and exploring where I live.

Views on Today's 13 Miler 
Today's run was supposed to be 13 miles at a 11-12:30 pace. Well, that didn't happen. In fact, around mile 8, I almost called it quits and walked the mile back home. But instead, I forced myself to walk the other direction. Yes, the last 5 miles were more walk than run. I wound up with a 14:00 pace which is no where near what my training plan called for. But, it's done. It was 13 very soggy miles. 

I had steady rain for the first hour, and then showers/mist off and on for the last 2 hours. Yes, this run took me 3 HOURS today.  They say it's the tough ones that make you stronger. Well this outta make me super strong ha. 

Weekly mileage: 40 miles.

  1. Sometimes the toughest runs are the most rewarding. I've found that I think and learn a lot from my tough runs because the easy ones just don't stay on my mind as much.

  5. I think it's great you're exploring your area. And think of it this way. Walking is better then doing nothing.

  8. My hat is off to you. I am terrible when it comes to running (as in only when being chased). Beautiful view indeed! It's okay that you walked five miles, you didn"t give up and you kept going in the right direction!

  12. Whew, that's awesome that you didn't give up and finished it out! The first and last time I ran 13 miles was back in 2010, so I am sending serious props your way! :O I love the idea of being able to explore where you live while exercising. :]
