“long run” Sunday

Everyone I know, pretty much ran the new Marathon and half Marathon in Celebration Florida today.  Seems people had a good time, at least from Facebook. I ran 5 miles out on the trusty West Orange Trail. I had not charged my Garmin, so I ended up having to run with Runtastic.  It was a …

Wrap up and long run.

Today was my long run.  16 miles.. So I actually prepared for this one and got out there early enough.  Sometimes though even the best of plans are foiled by whatever. I planted my water all over town and pulled into the trail head where I generally start at about 6:09.  I did note there …

Marathon training Day 75. The worst Long run ever

I have to admit, this was not the worst long run ever.  I’ve had worse 20 milers.  This one was special though. I had to take a day off work this week to make up for my Sunday at work.  So I took Friday.  Whoo Hoo 3 day weekend.  And I decided to knock the …

Marathon training day 63

Long run.  15 miles one hour spin, about 12.3 miles. So, I was feeling pretty good when I started out for the long run.  I had some lingering tired feelings but, I think loads of us feel tired on the weekends.  I maybe more than others, because I actually have to get up earlier on …

Marathon Training Day 56

18 mile run. Oh man. Well, it was faster than my 17 miler. I went to Fleet Feet in Altamonte springs looking for KT tape on Saturday to help with the run.  I admit, my first trip to Fleet Feet, I was Super Impressed.  This time, not so much.  The person who greeted me actually …

Marathon Training Day 49

Whew! Seventeen miles. I had a friend offer to run with me, which is a GIFT.  SO I took him up on it, especially because I was relegated to the softer, mushy Clay Trail, rather than the West Orange Bike route.  My bike riding aid delivering friend would not be able to do an assist …

Day 42, Marathon Training

Still feeling fatigue.   but am feeling better than Friday. I woke up this morning and went to meet my friend from work. She suggested 7:30 am which was a really late time for me.  In retrospect, I wonder if I am always so tired because I force myself out to run very early in …

Day 35 Rocking the Marathon Training

Today was the Pinnacle of a tough training week.  I had a 16 mile Long run.  No big deal right?  Well…I have not run longer than 13 since I had Hip surgery, which was quite a while ago.  So  to me this was kind of a big deal.  On top of it, my plan went …

Marathon Training Day 21.

Things seemed to get really real today. On the plan:  run 13 easy and spin out 1.5 hours. I decided since it was “easy”  to hit the clay road here in C-mont since time would not matter, plus I was feeling a little sore.  I had tried to get a Bib for the Disney Princess …

Race Report 26.2 with Donna

Well, this was my long run, non-race event this past weekend.  One of the nicest race experiences I’ve had. I was asked a few weeks ago by a friend if I would come up and support her first Marathon.  Due to some unforseen events, her family was unable to make it up there. I admit, …
