Healthy modeling for the win!
Long Run Saturday - 27.16 miles in 4:15
So I don’t know how I forgot to tell you about this little training run I did with firefighter-trailrunner-buddy.
Firefighter-trailrunner-buddy is training for 6 marathons in 7 days (the New England Challenge I think it is called). So, he’s trying to get in some back to back Marathon efforts. He worked a 24h shift on Thursday and then ran a 23 miler Friday (to meet his wife at the gym where I teach).
Then, Saturday morning, I picked him up at his house, and we went back to the gym and started running. Just east of the Y, there’s a county road with a decent berm and we were pretty much able to run that right into the big city to end up at the fire station where his truck was waiting. Neat, huh?
Oh yeah, there was one detour. We went about 3 miles out of our way to go to this rad, old school donut shop. So we had a donut/water aid station at mile 10. Otherwise it was gels, etc. on the go.
Great training run, great conversation, lots of laughs and though it’s not official, I bested my last year’s marathon PR.
Then, we got to meet up with friends for dinner and drink beers and enjoy the outdoors. Luckily, these are the sorts of friends who don’t find it weird when you use the foam roller in the middle of the floor while having a conversation. The only kinds of friends to have, really.
Great job to all you runblrs on your races and training runs last weekend.
