My 7-mile training run…
Today, I ran 7 miles. As, I mentioned in a previous blog post I am training for the Dopey Challenge. 3.1 miles + 6.2 miles + 13, .1 miles + 26.2 miles = 48.6 miles of pure Dopey-ness.
I was a bit nervous about this run because I have not run that far in a while. Plus, last week, my running stunk due to headaches. According to my training schedule, I was due to run 7 miles today. So, I had to suck it up.
Anyways, I’ve done lots of 5k runs since June that went well, but this training run, I needed to improve my endurance and run further.
I headed out around noon to Marblehead Rail Trails, turned on some music tunes and just ran. I actually enjoyed myself. And I accomplished, what I wanted to do. I had a good 7-mile run.
That evening, after my long run, I went out to dinner with my spouse. Very nice treat.

I am now on my way to a January 2022 Marathon finish line.
