Today I took it upon myself to go for a long run. I haven't done one it a while and I figured I could put 7-10 miles in. This is a far cry from a true long run, but these days, in these hills, 7 miles would put some solid miles on my fresh legs.
The run ended up being 7 miles. In fact, I used gmap-pedometer.com to create my run route. 7 miles was easy to come by with all the trails around here. I felt the concrete beneath my feet and it began to wear on my knees by the end of the run.
I need to find a new route to put these miles down on. I have heard there is a nice dirt trail down in the metro area. I might give that a shot next Saturday... Road Trip!
