Long Run Weekend #1 – Day 1

First day of the long run weekend. Today’s target was 14K, which I hit in about 1hr 26mins. Endomondo Track here. I was using my Nike+ SmartWatch as well, and kept it going till I got home, which was another 3K. Total distance out: 17.2K, total time out: 1hr 58min 58secs.

No Endomondo PBs were broken on this run, but I did set several on Nike+: Farthest Run (17.2K), Longest Run (1hr 58min 58secs), Most Calories Burned (1,140kcal), Fastest 5K (28’51”), Fastest 10K (1’02’12”). I also got the Afternooner trophy (1500 Nike Fuel earned between 2pm and 5pm)

This was one of the longer runs I’ve done in a while, and coming down the last 3K, my hamstring in my right leg started to hurt.

Tomorrow’s target is 16K. If I clock that, my target of a 30K weekend will be achieved. In fact, I will have done more than a Half Marathon over the weekend. Most likely, I’ll use the same route as I took today, so by the end of tomorrow, I’ll have a double 17K under my belt.

    1. About a year on-off. Was doing 5Ks daily for the first year, then worked up to a 7K, then did a 10K race (blogged on here), and did the occasional 10+K distance after that. Aiming for the HM this year, so I’m focusing on doing the distance rather than getting there in a short time. It’s all about the mindset. And trying to ignore your legs screaming at you to stop 😛
