9 weeks until the Boston Marathon. This came in the mail….
Last weekend I ran 21 miles as part of my Galloway Boston Marathon training Program. By running longer, I am increasing my endurance and performance for race day. In order to prevent the physical soreness of 21 miles, I walked and ran very slowly. Turtle pace. My assignment for this run was just cover the distance. No huff and puffing. Pure exhaustion was not allowed.
Prior to the run, I had a carbo-load dinner and then it was run time the next morning. I had plenty of snacks and drinks and just tried to enjoy myself. I sang along to Country music, and Broadway tunes just to make sure I wasn’t pushing too hard. I also broke the mileage into 4 segments of 5 miles. After each segment, I would stretch, grab a snack and just chill a minute or two.
And then I was done.
and I was not found lying on the ground pass out.
I also been swimming to build up my strength.
