Marathon Journal: 10 Miles Slow
February 8, 2010
These were the most pathetic miles I’ve run yet. It was pretty tough since I’m just over a cold and I was running on bad carbs… the 8 million I ate during the Super Bowl yesterday. I skinned my knee and a pizza roll came out.
It’s hard to believe that only last week I could do double this amount, because I could barely eek out this one. Some of it’s mental, some physical, it’s hard to tell where one begins and the other ends. I only got in one 4 mile run this last week and that’s no good. My knees and joints needed an extra long break after the last long run.
I don’t have much of a plan, but I need to get in a few more 4 mile runs before I attempt another long run. Just so you know my schedule has me doing an 18-20 mile run again this Saturday. I can tell you right now that’s not gonna happen.
