ran 26 miles today! (Read 1077 times)

    Today I did my 26 mile training run! (Jeff Galloway style)  it was awesome.  We have 1 more to do Nov 1...although we ran it MUCH slower than I will for the marathon it was great to feel what that mileage feels like!
      what does it mean "Jeff Galloway style?"
        Galloway is a run/walk program.  His training you actually run the full marathon length prior to the actual race.  So we run for 3 min, walk for 1 for 26 miles.  I LOVE the program.  A lot of people dislike it, but it works great for me. 
          Outstanding!  Congrats!

            That is wonderful! Congrats

            First or last...it's the same finish line

              In Galloway, can you change up the ratios? Because only running for 3 minutes doesn't at all sound fun to me, unless I suppose if you're running very hard for 3 minutes ....

                Congrats!

                 

                J G style. Walk 1 minute for each mile. The pace does not matter.

                Run until the trail runs out.

                  you really can run any intervals you want, but my group calculates your pace/run-walk ratios from timed mile trials.  You really have to read the book to understand it all.  It is not for everyone but I love it.

                    I ran my last marathon Galloway style.  I ran the first 7 miles, then walked the next 18, then ran the last mile.

                        Rhetorical question: do rhetorical questions add value?

                        When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

                          It doesn't matter if Galloway ever trained that way.  People who are using his training method aren't elites.  They are simple utilizing the method to stay fit and push themselves beyond their running only boundaries.

                           

                          Although I am not interested in the method, I congratulate you on a great 26 miles and hope you continue to enjoy running.  That's why we're all here after all, a love of running.

                            Probably Galloway only trained that way when training in 100F+ weather Smile

                            It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
