The most I ever ran in one day was 18 miles, while I was training for the Queens Marathon. That was about a week or two before COVID shut everything down, just three years ago.
I’ll say this – running 18 miles was magical.
It doesn’t hurt less, you just enjoy it more.
Sort of this theme of “seek discomfort.”
I’m not saying starve yourself and run for 48 hours.
For me, it’s running in the rain. Or running hills. Running in the cold and the dark.
That’s the discomfort that I love. And damn, running for 48 hours? That’s amazing. Not sure I’m ready for that, but I know I can run for two hours.
