The Sunday long run gave me strength and time to consider the week prior and the week before. For much of the late 1970s and most of the 1980s, Sunday runs were two hours of time with no radio, TV, just some chatting with my training partners. The long runs just give you the time to put your weekly life in perspective.
Enjoy the run.
