Fall 2014 (6-120) – Day 15

Submitted by on November 26, 2014 – 8:53 pm No Comment

Narrative: (Duration – 97.00 mins) →  My Nike Line
Another record today again – longest run in roughly 11 years.  I split my workout between the treadmill and elliptical today.  For the first 5 miles I ran the treadmill and then stepped over to the elliptical.  This is the first time doing this, but it broke up the experience and I rather liked it.  On the treadmill I alternated in 10 min intervals between 5.0 and 7.0 MPH and on the elliptical I did mostly a sprint keeping the resistance between 1 and 2, the incline at 15°, pretty much steady around 78 SPM pace.  I chalked up a 7.0 intensity due to stamina beyond 6 miles.  I felt really burnt at the 6 – 7 mile marker.  I suppose my body was saying – “dude, what the heck…time to stop already”.  But as I push through around the 8.75 mile marker, I literally felt the endorphins kick in and I felt like I could keep going forever – I really did not feel tired at all.  I stopped at 10.00 because that was my marker – in fact, my original was only to go 9.00.  I started off listening to Amazon, but the stream started to get spotty and mess with my run, so I switched over to Pandora for the rest of the run.  I really like these JBL earphones – light nice and sound great. That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’
