This was my first time running 10 miles each consecutive days on Saturday and Sunday. Running with someone who can run at your pace helps a lot in the training runs. I always thought that muscles need to relax after a long run but when I read one of Scott Jurek's article which said that running long runs consecutive days strengthens your muscle endurance, I was tempted to do this. And really, I felt perfectly fine after my 10 + 10. Scott Jurek is my hero these days but only 2nd on the list. The first one is but of course, Shavi:) Scott is a crazy long distance runner who has set record in Western States 100 miles seven consecutive times and many other records for even longer miles (153 miles). His highlights: Scott Jurek.
Thanks to Shavi for running with me on Sunday and motivating me. I would have turned back halfway since it wasn't easy in the sun even when we started running at 6:30am. I ran at an overall faster pace on Sunday than on Saturday. I am still waiting for that day when running 10 miles feel easy.
