Sunday runs were always my favorites.
As a JC coach, I did a 10-15 miler on Sundays all year long, and would have up to 8 runners in the group. We would run through Los Altos, CA and our two hour runs were fun. I would run with my baby Jogger (my son, Adam was 3) and it was my favorite run of the week. Everyone from 800m to 10,000m ran the run, checking in with me for a mile, then off they went.
In college, I ran long on Sunday and Wednesday. I wrote all my college papers on my long runs. A good long run allowed the papers to flow when I actually sat down to write. As a history major and art major, my athletics and university pursuits.
Enjoy the long runs.
