14…miles done. I made it.
Prior to my long run, I was nervous because my fall allergies were bothering me greatly. Those beautiful color leaves that have fallen to the ground, decaying and the rain has caused tons of mold spores to be released into the air. Mold is a big allergen for me.
Going into the long run, my plan was to run most of my miles outside and then the last miles inside to avoid an overload with the allergens.
After checking Accuweather thousand times for allergy reports; today at noon my long run began. It was 60 degrees, not bad. Plus, the wind died down. Time to get out the door!
The run went well. I ran everywhere. 8 miles on the rail trail
3 miles along the beach
1 mile around my neighborhood
Last 2 on the treadmill
. During my run, I focused ONLY on endurance not speed. (Cover the Distance) Jeff Galloway taught me, I get the same benefit from a long slow run as I do from a long fast one. No more killing myself during a long run!
I am feeling good about my training.
In two weeks, I will be in Disney World participating in the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Challenge. The challenge is ….
Saturday 6.2 miles
Sunday 13.1. miles
LOVE MY CANDY APPLE AFTER A LONG RUN!
