Long Run of 9.30 miles

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Yesterday, I did my long run and ran 9.30 miles on the treadmill. I started using my Jeff Galloway app along with my Nike + but for some reason I could not get both apps to run at the same time. Frustrating. I chose to stick with the Nike+ and keep track of my run/walk by watching the timer.

I find it easier for me to push myself if I have a voice telling me when to run or walk. Otherwise that "other" voice inside my head gets too loud and convinces me that I am too tired, isn't that a pain in my foot, etc.

I had a couple of rounds where the other voice won and I walked a bit more than the scheduled, but I also want to stay injury free. However, I finished strong and close too the time the JG app had for the time the workout should take.

My half Marathon is 10 weeks away, doing 9.3 miles and the fact that I did not have to take a nap after this workout is a great confidence booster.
