Here is the recipe.
Back in Boston, I ran seven miles this evening. Seven miles is the furthest I have run in my training program so far and it is a big step for me! For one thing, this was my first run that was more than half of the length of the half marathon I am training for. Being halfway there is a huge psychological boost. I often find in my runs that the first half is rough, but once I make it halfway I really believe I can finish and it gets easier. So I am hoping that now that I know I can run seven miles, I will have more confidence that I can really do this thing! The other reason seven miles is exciting is that it is about as long as I have ever run! At some point in college I could run about seven miles, but certainly never eight. So any progress I make from this point forward is really new territory for me and that is very motivating!
I was happy to be back at the reservoir this evening. After my six miles in 95 degree heat on Sunday, I was pretty pleased to be running these seven miles on a day when the high was 72 and it was raining! Ah, simple pleasures!
