ran my first 20 miler! (Read 707 times)

    I train using the Galloway method and I am truly convinced this is one of the best programs out there! I ran my first 20 miler today and although it was slow, it is something I never thought I'd do!  I'm training for the philly marathon and can't wait!

        Huge milestone...most people can't/won't run 2 miles...you ran TEN TIMES that distance!  NICE! Big grin

            Great job and accomplishment. Remember though, the "best program" is the one that works best for YOU, depending on YOUR goals. 

              Congrats, it's a huge milestone for anybody. It was a really blissful moment for me Smile I did it last Friday after a month of setbacks (good and bad ones). It feels good to know I beat that distance and won't have to push it farther until November.


              Beware, batbear...

                Congratulations!  I ran my first 10 miler this week.  It will be a couple of months before I'm up to 20, but it's in sight!  Good luck in Philly!

                  Great work!  I ran Philly a few years ago - really enjoyed it.  Have fun.
