Sunday's long run was a two-fold run for me! The first were for Toni's virtual birthday run over at Running, Loving, Living!
Because I was going round two on trying out Galloway it wasn't the fastest I could do but I was excited to celebrate Toni's birthday with her in a fun way! I cruised through the 3.5 in 29:45 and then went on my merry way to complete my next 12 miles.
This second time around with Galloway I focused on the distance and staying consistent throughout the run. The temps were so not fun around 15* without the windchill so it was steady for me. There were a few miles I ran without the walk break but for the most part I stuck with run a mile, walk a minute. I was not only very happy with my time (2:15:13) but I was even more excited with how I felt after. The whole reason why I chose to try out this method was so that I wasn't toast for the rest of the day. Having a toddler means no rest for the weary!! Well I was tired but not really sore at all. Almost right after the run we got in the car to go to visit my family and shop for cars! I felt great and the next day my legs felt great too! I kept telling my hubby that I was so excited with how good my legs felt! I am gong to continue to use this method training for this 20 miler....if it isn't broke....! Here is my post race/long run pic! You can't see the icicles!
