Mind Running

My Saturday morning long run was hard.  It wasn't just the 20 odd miles I ran, but my mind wasn't in it.

Every mile seemed like a slog.  I was dreading the four plus hours I'd be spending on my feet.

This reminds me - once again - that running this 50K event isn't just going to be a physical challenge.  Spending seven-ish hours on my feet is going to be mentally taxing.

So my valuable take away from this hard run: Don't think about the mileage ahead and just concentrate on the next step.
