I just finished my first 10 miler and I felt way more tired than when I ran the 9 miles last week. I was pushing really hard when I got to 8 miles and felt like giving in and walking the rest, BUT I did stick it out, running the entire 10 miles. I just kept thinking to myself, gosh, I hope this gets easier in the future, the more miles I add on. I do have a high level of respect for those of you who already have several full marathons under your belts, I can't imagine what it will feel like when I can finally say that I have run 26.2 miles. I think I need to just focus on the half first and then worry about the full later on.
My pace was slow today, partly because I felt so exhausted. 10:54.
Have a great week everyone!!!
