When was the last time ran farther or rode longer or swam faster or lifted more than you thought you could?

      I guess that would be this Weds. when I did my first century. Wanted to throw in the towel & just do a 40, but I didn't want my demons to beat me so I found the motivation to go farther than I ever had...

      That is impressive. You'll need to take it easy to recover from that.

      Thanks - I guess I didn't realize this & have been too hard on myself for hitting wall recently.

      Thanks Kirstin! With events testing my limits this fall I'm, of course, in the middle of lots of training that will do the same now + humidity! You know the drill, even if you're not doing the same at this moment :-)

  11. #dailymission When was the last time ran farther than you thought you could? My 18 miler to the George Washington Bridge and back. About 5 miles farther than I had ever run in the past with only wh... read more

  12. #dailymission I was pretty proud of running nearly 14 miles last Sunday. I've been in a mind-fuck, with fears of 10+ miles for months, so it's good to be over the mental hump and beyond t... read more

      Yup, the longer distances are mostly mental.

      I fear no distance, ergo I will injure the hell out of myself and then brag about how badass I am while I'm getting pudgy.

      That's one part of summer I don't like. I cut back a little because of the heat and then have to ramp up quickly in order to be ready for a marathon in November. While I am out running during the summer, I think about having to increase the distance and how difficult it is going to be. But once the weather gets a little cooler, it ends up being a lot easier.

  14. #dailymission last time I ran farther/longer than I thought I could? I'd say 5/17/12 for the mountain 50K but I knew I'd do it so... guess I don't have the answer yet. Ask me again a... read more

      I don't have an answer for that question yet either. I've never believed that I couldn't run something, it's matter of balancing the run with the aftermath recovery time of it. That's why I like shorter races, less recovery time!

  15. #dailymission I could have lots of answers but - I ran the other night for the first time in over a month and not only did I go pretty darn fast (for me) but I rocked all the uphills. I wasn't... read more
