today: 11km which is the longest I've done (so far)
🎉🎉🎉
How different is it to running shorter distances? Like, do you just gradually get more tired or do you just hit a point where it hurts? (I ask as someone who barely knows what running is lol)

I'm gonna try and keep running every day and my goal is to do a half marathon (21.1km) by the end of this month.
Idk if that's too ambitious lol? (If so, I might just aim for a 15-18k instead)
Have you considered running IB? (This is a bit of a meme in Fenner, but also somewhat serious question haha)

I don't really feel much different from longer distances as I run at a pretty slow, steady, low-intensity pace so I don't really get tired. The only thing is that it obvs takes longer and I feel better cos I ran more lol

and I'd love to do IB but it's super competitive at my college I probably don't stand a chance. I'll probably still train for it though.
Also why is it a meme at Fenner haha?

for those who don't go to ANU
IB is basically an endurance & orienteering competition where they drop teams of 4 blindfolded into the middle of some random place and you have to find your to the end, you run about 30-100km depending on your division.

update:
wednesday: 7km but super slow
thursday: 10.8km
friday: 8.5km but was windy af
saturday: 9.7km
yesterday: 11km
today: did a record - 12.2km in about 1h10. also today was my fastest recorded pace ever :o weird considering longer distances implies slower pace and I also only had 4hrs of sleep but I did run at lunchtime instead of the morning so maybe that's why

I think this would be a great idea!
Is there an actual half marathon at the end of the month, or are you just aiming to run the distance on your own?

Heya Strawbs, how's things? ❤️❤️❤️
You're both the fire and the water that extinguishes it.
You're the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick.
You're the storyteller and the story told.
You are somebody's something, but you are also your you.
