13.01km 1:29:28hr 6.52min
That’s 8.08 miles at 11min/mile. Not fast by any stretch of imagination but the idea today wasn’t fast but distance. This is the longest distance I’ve ever run. Ran all the way to Montrose beach then up to the roundabout and back. I wanted to see if I can do 8 miles comfortably and then think about which race to enter in April: CARA lakefront 10mile, Wrigley 5k or Ravenswood 5k. What I learned today:
- I’m fine with the distance
- running against the wind is hard
- technical shirts ftw
- take energy gel at around the 1hr mark
- bring water
As for which race, I’ll probably stick with the Ravenswood. Build endurance slowly, don’t get too ambitious.
