when does it become an LSR?

How far do you have to run before it becomes a Long Slow Run exactly?

Last night I ran 6.5 miles..... yes, thats 6.5 miles!!!

It felt fantastic... so good that when I crossed my own path at about 5 miles, I had a momentary idea of running the loop again to log 10 miles... fortunately my head managed to overrule my heart!

The best bit of all is that I got back feeling stiff and tired, but not painful in any way, and this morning, I feel like I had a good run yesterday, not a round with Mike Tyson!

I'm more optimistic about getting some decent mileage in now than I have been in weeks... at least since late November... my one and only remaining concern is a slightly sore knee when cycling longer distances... but i'm going to take a good look at my cleat set ups on my shoes to see that they are lined up properly, and just keep steadily building the mileage like i've done with the running..

Light does indeed exist at the end of the tunnel!


  1. I stumbled across your blog via the Runkeeper website - makes for a good read, keep up the good work.

    I've just started running and am attempting a 10k in May, so I'll keep stopping by for inspiration!!!

  2. Thx!.... we can share stories of blisters, pains and moments of triumph!
