The ‘Wall’

When running a marathon, runners will sometimes describe meeting ‘the wall’, which is mystical marathon runner speak for “I got tired”. The wall is a moment in a marathon, or any other long distance race, where your body simply refuses to obey your brain. Your legs become logs of wood, and your lungs take a nap. When you’re unfit, the wall is what you mee after running for around 45 seconds. On my Monday run, it felt tough. Like I’d been running for an hour before I even started. I don’t know if I was hungry, tired, it was the heat or something else, but it was the toughest run so far of the 5 lessons. Distance: 1.92 miles Time: 23:27 Temperature 88/29
