Hi my name is Fancy Nancy and I have a problem with alliteration.....I just have to do it!!!
Galloway.....I again used the Galloway method for my weekend long run of 17 miles and again folks it did not dissappoint! Unfortunately I made one false move which will officially launch me into genius runner status...forgot to charge my Garmin!!!! Therefore I had to run the same 8 mile loop twice and then around my neighborhood once. Yeah I paid for my mistake with BOREDOM! Other than that it was an awesome day to run Sunday and I am still in love with the Galloway. I used a regular watch and ran 9 minutes on and 10 seconds off. I think I'm ready for the Martha's Vineyard 20 miler next weekend....now if only my mind was in agreement with my body!!
Gear....I've been trying out the gear from our 12 in 2012 sponsers iFitness and Chicabands this week and during my long runs. I have made no point to hide that I normally don't like wearing a belt....I don't need any more badonkadonk back there if you know what I mean!
Well I packed up the iFitness belt up with raisins (trying them for fuel....pretty good!)
and strapped it on.
Initial thoughts were....comfy and not anything like the other belt I used to use. It never moved the whole 17 miles and I will say that I love it!! I look forward to using it racing and not having to wear something with pockets all the time!
Giant Wagers....Yeah last week I opened my big mouth and bet on the Patriots against NYC Running Momma. Well last night I had to settle my wager....and let me tell you, after 17 miles the day before 4 miles of speedwork just plain bit the big one!! But a bet is a bet.....here are the pictures to prove it!
Love my Chicaband but not losing a bet....
