8 1/2 mile run

Man, that was tiring! I did it though. I guess I'm just not used to the hotter weather. It was breezy which was nice and I had a decent time, but I am plum tuckered out. 8 1/2 mile run done at 10:50 ppm, about 1 hour 30 minutes. My legs just feel like lead. I am beginning to have doubts about whether I can do a full marathon. Some runs are just better than others I suppose.
Yea, the weekend is here and I can relax and recoup, my legs, mind and all.

Don't doubt yourself are you will not run the marathon ... it is a mind game! You just ran 8 1/2 miles almost 1/3 of the marathon ... the marathon is in October, this is March ... YOU WILL DO IT!

I was barely eeking out 8 miles this time last year. Funny how months of training can take you to feeling the same after 20 that you did after 8 when you started. You can do it, like SilentRN said, it is all in your head, or at least 90% of it is in your head. The last 10% is putting in the milage :-)
