Last weekend I got so feed up with the wind and the crappy footing after 12 miles that I did the last 8 miles on the mill. It was weird because then it didn’t feel like a 20 mile run.
on that angle, what (if any) downsides are there to breaking up a long run like that? my last two long runs were broken up as 7.5+6.5=14 and 11+6.5=17.5 with me changing clothes/shoes in between and grabbing some water to drink. i’d say the “in between” was only 5-7 minutes.
quite honestly, i’m in awe of the miles that double/woody are posting in this cold. double…are you still wearing cotton/nylon out there?
