Short Weekly Long Run - 5 weeks until 1st Marathon.
Stayed at my parents place Friday night as it was closer to work after finishing late and Dad needed some help around the house. So I had packed my bag Thursday.
Left Dads around 6.30am, in the dark. Temperature was 2.7C!!!!! It was ffffing freezing. I'll admit debating going back to a nice warm bed but thought i have been in worse situations in my life and I'm no softc#ck.
Had on my 2XU compression tights, a compression vest, a Nike lightweight long sleeve running top, a skull cap under my running hat, and a thin pair of running gloves (may need to get a warmer pair), and my Nathan Running Hydration pack. I was so damn cold that it did cross my mind after 1km to turn around, but again mental toughness is what will get me over that Marathon Finish line. Also I have had a bastard of a week at work and really needed this run. Ran harder and faster than I should have, but as some will understand, the aches and the pain when it comes can bring a sense calmness with it.
One more long run next Saturday then 4 weeks of tapering down, in that time doing the Suncorp Bank Harbour 10km race. Will try to crack 50minutes but will see what happens
