Pushing Forward

07.16.2018 With my marathon just eight days behind me, I decided to go out for another long run, 16 miles to be exact. Normally, I’d take a good two weeks to fully recover and then start building back up to distances like that. In addition to the distance, I added a slightly more challenging element to the run. Normally, I run out and back, and for distances longer than ten miles, I’ll do a double out and back from my own front door. Today, I geared up with a hydration vest and my twin bottle hydration waist pack and ran 5.7 miles to Choccolocco Park, three times around the lake and then home for the sixteen mile total. I brought 3-liters of Gatorade, three Nature Valley bars and two Gatorade energy chews. There was a restroom at the park. As I prepare for longer self supported challenges, this kind of training will prove invaluable. In other news, I finished editing my marathon race report, bundled it into an episode of my Runway, and you can watch it here:
