I am happy to announce that my marathon training is going according to the plan. Here are all the runs from last week:
Monday – rest day
Tuesday – 9.03 km
Wednesday – rest day
Thursday – 12.81 km
Friday – 9.03 km
Saturday – 25 km
My longest run so far : 25 km
The biggest challenge during the long run is not the energy shortage – it’s patience. There is only one friend – yourself. There is only one enemy – yourself. I embrace the opportunity to see what’s beyond the border – the limit of your own skills. I am pushed into the unknown therefore I witness the reaction of my body and mind in a way like I have never seen before. The more I challenge myself the more I learn. With every single run I build my endurance. It helps me to run – but only helps. What controls the run is my mind.
I felt quite strong during this 25 km and if I had to I would run more. What hold me back was a lack of patience. I was running for so long that I bet you have already cooked your lunch, ate it, visited your grandma and met your friends. You had constant external factors to entertain you, I had only myself. Great life lesson.
Plus your stomach is craving for good food! Don’t believe :)?
When was the last time you get close to your limits?
