I know that we are all different but I want advice if there's any experienced long distant runners on here? I am currently training for my first half marathon and today I decided to see if I could actually run it and I was able to. I have built myself up to run 13 miles, my best was 7 miles, then 8, then 10 and now 13 so I haven't just gone out and done 13 miles I've built myself up to it and my legs I'd say are decently strong.

I'd say I run with good form but sometimes it does slack a bit once I get into later miles, but as soon as I am aware I put a stop to it. So today, my legs hurt so badly after it, so did my hips, back, arms and just about everything. I stretched after it, drank plenty of water, made sure I didn't eat any fatty foods and also made sure I got up and walked about every now and then so I didn't become stiff.

I feel I am beginning to recover, for example after I was done with it, due to the pain I was like never again but now I am more than up for it, ofc I am going to have tomorrow off from any work outs just to be safe. Is a lot of pain normal after a long 13 mile run? My legs are beginning to feel a lot better now, so are my hips and back.

Opinions?

I think if its your first time its probably not worth paying attention to.

Back when I did a lot of running I'd feel pretty much normal after a 20k - just dehydrated and hungry lol. But as soon as i got out of practice it became a lot harder.
