longest run in a few months

While I haven't been posting, I have been running, albeit not consistently. I go through a few weeks where I run a couple times a week, and then I go through a period where I dont run at all for a couple of weeks.

I am now coming off of two weeks with no running, and I really felt like I needed to go out for a decent long run.

I went out today planning to do a 12km or so run, and was thinking about seeing how I feel maybe extending it to 14km or 15km.

I went out around part of RBS and then out to the Highway 375. I ran up past Tzomet Aderet and then back. I was feeling great, albeit it was starting to get hot out in the open sun, and kept extending the run on longer paths.

In the end I ended up running (still doing the barefoot running) 17km, and I still felt like I could have kept running.

This is the farthest I have run in about 3 months, and the longest barefoot run I have done except for 1 very painful 18km run about 3 months ago. This time it was painless and felt great.
