Today’s 43 was fairly simple – BECAUSE THERE ISN’T A SINGLE PART OF MY BODY THAT ISN’T SORE!!!
I did V-situps on a bench!
This was about all I could manage today but I’m happy that I still got in a daily 43!!
And -REST DAY!!!
These long runs have a dual purpose – they are a nice way to mark some of the big days in my journey this year but they are also training runs for my 50-mile race in October!!!
Day 250, I didn’t have a successful run – partly because I was a bit over ambitious with my goal! For yesterday’s 300 minute run, I went into it with no other goal than to complete the time. I didn’t set any type of mile goal and I told myself in advance that walking was perfectly acceptable!!!
I started off with the treadmill set at 6.5mph (9:13 pace) and left it there for the first 3 hours. The last 2 hours I still kept that pace for my running portions but I started alternating run/walks. I figure that I need to get my legs used to going back and forth between running and walking because I know that 50 miles on trails, roads, fields will require some walking!!
Overall, I was happy with my 300 minutes yesterday – 31 miles total – and…..I achieved my goal!!!
Funny that my sports bra looks like a completely different color – sweat!!! Jordan said – “you better get up you’re going to be sore.” I don’t think he realized I was way past that point – the soreness was already there!!Can you see my blister? I had this by the end of the 2nd hour!!!
What is the longest time/distance you have done on a treadmill, or just in general?
My longest consecutive treadmill run was 42 miles (when I turned 42) in about 7.5 hours. Hopefully after September 16, that will become 44 miles!!! My longest run over 2 days – 60 miles.
