The past ten days I lamented and stressed over the weather forecast for marathon day. The chance of rain swayed from 80% to 10%, and then back up to 90%. The temps were another tricky factor. The days before and after were showing anywhere from highs in the 50’s to highs in the low-mid 40’s.
My long runs have been a challenge for me ever since that 21-miler a couple of months ago. They continue to be the bane of my existence, but I still keep trying to circumvent the problem, so I can actually kill as many runs above 20 miles, that I can. The White Rock Marathon is but 40 days away, and I am still not yet satisfied with how my feet are holding up on the latter miles.
Saturday I headed out at about 7:30 to see just how far I could get. My goal was a 20+, as for whatever mileage was after that, I would consider it as a cupcake bonus cherry on top.
Dear #runmeter why do you keep giving me links to invalid maps? Getting really irritated here.
UPDATE: Uh because dummy, your iPhone’s GPS chip has slowly started to die…. and it did eventually. When I bought my new iPhone 4S, everything worked perfectly.
