Long runs are a Sunday fixture.
In high school, I would run 9-14 miles on Sundays. In college, I built up to 18 miles-22 miles on Sundays almost all year. The long runs were comforting and confidence building. They were also the times when it was the only time that I had to enjoy the moment.
Enjoy your run.
