Sometimes lately I feel like the little kid saying, "Look Ma, no hands!", except I'm saying, "Look Ma, I'm running...and running....still running...!"
Today was a 12 mile run. I decided, since it was a "short" long run, that I would do a route that has lots of tough hills. I was actually surprised at how much easier (and I use that term very loosely!) it was going up those hills than I remember it being from the last time I ran that same route. Again, progression showing itself. I also accidentally did almost a half a mile extra, because I didn't hear my watch alarm go off when I hit 12 miles. I guess that's good; I definitely felt tired in my legs, but I felt like I could have kept on going without any trouble. Just 2 weeks until the big day....!
