I ran, ran and ran
I said, I will run 8 miles, 3 days in a row. I did it as well. First day was easy. Considering that my best time for 8 miles is 60 minutes, I didn’t push myself at all and finished 8 miles in 63 minutes. The following day, I was tired but didn’t feel much like until the last few miles. I finished in 65 minutes. Third day, from the start my legs were feeling heavy, sluggish with some pain at my calves. Regardless, I ran, ran and ran. Last two miles, more than once, I wanted to quit. Didn’t. When my garmin beeped the eight time, I slowed down, ran a bit more and stopped. I completed in 67 minutes. Everyday I got 2 minutes (15 seconds/mile) slower still I think I did well. First time in my life I ran two consecutive days for 8 miles each and then three consecutive days for 8 miles each. In total, ~25 miles, almost a marathon distance. I don’t think I can ever run all that all at once.
Three days after the run, I still feel tired. I think, I will run Monday next.
