As I expected, the run was hard. Oh so hard. I managed to do the whole thing without dying! Yay me! However, the group I was supposed to be in was so unbelievably far ahead of me that I ended up running with the other group anyways. So it got me thinking. Sure. I can run the longer time intervals but
1. Do I want to?
2. Am I getting anything (or enough) out of it?
The other group just does shorter intervals. They are out for the same amount of time and go the same distance. I could go in that group and actually be faster. I’m definitely not getting any faster now. I can run but so so so slow. And realistically I’m not going to be doing the sun run all at once. I’m going to be doing smaller intervals.
