Last week-end I ran the annual Scotland 10k race in Central Park. The weather was perfectly sunny and cool. This was the first long run for the year. I found myself getting bored and mentally fatigued by mile 4. A few years ago I ran a winter half-marathon in Brooklyn. Long-distance running requires concentration and focus because it can get mentally tiring!
I hope to work my way up to a half marathon by this summer. I've never been any good running in summer heat, so this will be an interesting challenge.
