Finish Strong (100mi/31days): Day 5

Submitted by on December 8, 2014 – 1:15 am No Comment

Narrative: (Duration – 100.00 mins) →  My Nike LineLongest-Distance Record
Went a bit Gumpish today – my second 10 miler in recent weeks.  I really feel my body getting fit with each step and running such high miles close together is quite a feat for me.  I think this is the most I have done within days of each other in a long time.  If I keep up this pace, watch my diet and start weights in the Spring, I will be good for my first 1/2 marathons and a series of 10k’s.  I will try to get the missus onboard as well.  She is doing fine too.  Specifics: Elliptical set at resistance 3 and incline15°; kept the SPM at roughly 77.  Started relatively slow since I knew was gonna be a long run.  I think I probably started too slow.  At any rate, I picked it up in the middle stages, but by the time I got to the 7mi point I was pretty tired.  I got a second wind in the late stage of the 9th mile.  I did experience much endorphins this on this run.  Finally, Jason Derulo was the play of choice – really cool music to work out to, especially – Bubblegum and Talk Dirty. That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’
