Since my long run did not go so well yesterday. I'm looking to redeem myself.
Weather permitting I was going on another long run, but this time it was going to be in my vff's. Cold toes or not. I got all my stuff on and headed to town. I'm thinking I'll do at least 9 miles in my vff's. My thoughts were just to take it slow and easy. To see how my feet were going to feel today.
The 1st mile I was feeling pretty good, so much easier then yesterdays run in my running shoes. At mile 3 I'm checking myself to see how my legs and feet are feeling. My legs are still feeling pretty relaxed and no pain in my feet.. ( I wish I felt this good every time I ran). For the first time since last October I was starting to get into a rhythm and it was feeling pretty good. I can't say that I have had much rhythm, due to the lack of running long distance. By the time I reached 9 miles, I was already thinking I should push it to 10. Yahoo, 10 miles in my vff's. That is my longest run in them so far.
I'm running Dam to Dam in June and it is a 20k. I've been playing with what shoes I should wear for a while now.. My running shoes vs vff's. After today's run I'm looking at running the whole 12.4 miles in my vff's. So I better get down to business and keep on pushing it. I have 2.4 more miles to push it.
I know how I think, so when the race gets here I will probably be second guessing myself. Can I really run 12.4 miles in my vff's. I know it is a mental game I play with myself. I just hope I don't have a panic attack at the starting line, because I'm stressing out about running Dam to Dam in vff's.
