Longest training run complete!
My goal for this run was to mimic as much of the Marine Corps Marathon course that I could and go for a pace around 9:30 min/mile-ish. I mapped out the run last night and my route had me ending around the Smithsonian. However, I must have missed something somewhere, because by the time I got to the Smithsonian, I still had a good 5 miles to go. So, I pushed on and headed back to Crystal City.
I wasn’t too sure how well this run would go. I didn’t get much sleep last night and I’ve been slacking on some of my training runs recently. Unsurprisingly, the last few miles of the run weren’t the greatest. There was a lot of talking to myself to keep myself motivated and going. But, I’m glad I got it done! The rest of the long runs are decreasing from here, so it makes me happy that I was able to complete this.
