I reached another "mile"stone in the early days of the training schedule this morning. We added another mile onto the training runs, meaning we're up to 3 miles.
It was the first time I've ever run 3 miles.
I woke up early this morning to good running weather -- not too hot with the brightness of late summer sun. Even though running in the morning seems harder for me, I really do enjoy it.
Everything seems quieter, despite the sounds of the country in the morning. It's a nice way to start the day.
Plus, I feel better during the day and I've already accomplished something before I get to my desk.
It was surprising to me that I didn't really notice the extra mile on this morning's run. That's a good sign. The training schedule must be working.
It felt good to make it easily through 3 miles, but I couldn't help but remind myself that the race will have another 10 miles on top of it. Plenty of time to work up to that.
REMEMBER, I'M DOING THIS FOR A GOOD CAUSE.
