It was “just” 13 miles.

It’s amazing how the human body can adapt.  The last three weeks my long runs were 20,18 and 21 miles.  This week my training schedule called for 13 but I didn’t really think anything of it.  I went out like it was a “long run”.   Surprisingly, I was done with the 13 before I knew it.  It felt like I didn’t finish my run.  I wanted to do more.   About six weeks ago I sure would not have thought that would be the case.  But, you body adjusts.  Follow a well-thought out training plan that has gradual increases and a good amount a rest to avoid injury and before you know it, 13 miles is no problem.
