I feel like when "Last Long Run" is said in a sinister voice, you'd have that evil laughter in it too - which is the reason for the subject line.
But this is what I did today! After literally sitting on the couch for four hours contemplating a run today and watching tv and drinking coffee, I finally got up and did it! Seriously, who starts their long runs at 2 pm...this girl, that's who!
I realize it's semi risky to be running 160 mins nine days before a marathon, but my long runs have been falling short due to a ton of travel and procrastination is the name of the game in marathon training right? right? d'awwwww.
Ok here's the run story in pictures!
Drove to south OC to Crystal Cove Park and saw THIS!
Awww hell no! I will park in the local shopping center and run over. This will save me lots o $$.
I ignored :) There wasn't much mud after all !
As much as I think Orange County can be a tad ridiculous, this is amazing and wonderful. It's hard to argue with true beauty.
I ran for about 2:40, which I am guessing was somewhere between 16 and 18 miles (I am not the speediest long runner in the world). I ate two gels on this run too, but mainly bc I hadn't eaten much prior to the run.
Well now it's time to taper like mad!
Thanks for reading! I think tomorrow I'll start recipes...stay tuned !
