I have been running my beginners route for about 3-4 weeks now. while I do feel I am getting stronger, by the time I finish each run, I still cannot imagine running even a minute more, or a meter more.
Last night on the spur of the moment I decided to drive my car around my running route and measure the distance/ the car odometer measured it at exactly 6 kilometers. It might actually be slightly more because I am running on the outer ring of the various streets I run on, and the car was not measuring on the outer ring, but let's call it 6km.
So I can run 6 km, but cannot imagine running any more than that. How the heck am I going to run a marathon?
