The Long and Winding Run
Our running schedule has us doing our "long runs" on Saturdays. This marathon preparation plan says it's okay to fudge a little during the week, but to absolutely not cheat on your long runs. Which, of course, is the one run you're absolutely dying to cheat on. At least I am. But yesterday's run got put off because it was our son's birthday and we do have priorities! Besides, making strawberry stuffed crepes for breakfast, giving him an awesome new guitar amp, and going to the local laser-tag facility to run and gun were so much more enjoyable! But this morning it was time to pay the piper. 16 miles of roadwork for me, 20 for Mark. (His schedule is different because his goals are much loftier than mine. Mine consist of finishing the marathon. That's all. Plenty lofty, if you ask me.) So we're back now and I'm starving--the nice thing about the long run being you can eat all day long. Now that's something to look forward to!
