The Running Man

I ran 10 kilometres today.

That's about 5 kilometres farther than I've ever run before.

I didn't really set out to do that. I was going to run about 3 miles or so, shoot for 5K (3.1 miles). I ran the 5K and wasn't the least bit tired, so I pushed through to 4 miles. At that point, it was only another mile to 5. And at that point, I figured, heck, let's shoot for the full 6.2 miles, or 10 kilometres.

It took me about 1 hour and 14 minutes to do it. I did some 10-1 intervals, but largely ran it in a rhythm of 7 minutes running and 3 minutes walking.

I just hope I'm able to walk tomorrow.
