Do other people do 19 mile long runs?

Since today was long run day, I hit the road for a 19 mile run. It seems like an odd distance to me, you hear a lot about “the 20 mile long run” and even the 18, but rarely (if ever) have I seen someone talk about the 19 they ran. 837 more words

Today’s long run was T.O.U.G.H. I know that it’s about 95% mental, at least for me. But, wow. I nearly gave up at mile 9. The advanced group had 10 miles on our slate today, so we took a bit of a different route to get our mileage in without having to do 3 loops of the park. 533 more words
