Running Challenge -3 Miles A Day for 30 Days – Day 14
November 21, 2020.
My pre-run meal – 1/3 cup of Steel Cut Oats Oatmeal and a cup of coffee
Long Distance Running On My Mind
If I said the weather was great yesterday, today was incredible!
The weather today was sunny and an amazing day to run! 63 F at run time.
I have been thinking I needed to add a long run to my normal daily 3 mile runs.
With little thought, I decided to run 6 miles.
Having a meal, a light meal… I thought it would be a good day to try.
Distance running is more mental than physical. My mind was right, so all systems go.
Completed my pre-run checklist; a warm-up of light stretching, a power check for the phone and air pods, grabbed my handheld phone carrier. Let’s roll.

On the Run – Before and After
At Your Own Pace
I finally decided to change my running trail.
It was a beautiful Saturday, which motivated me to push my limits.
Time was not a major issue. I set my pace calculator for a 10 minute mile. I wanted to go long and slow. I didn’t want muscle recovery to be an issue for tomorrow.
My body felt good during the run. I continue to use my older running shoes (Nike Air Max).
The wind was not a factor.
I wasn’t sure how I would do today, but I’m glad I did it. I love a long distance running and the sense of accomplishment you get from doing it.
I was satisfied to have completed the workout and was pleased with my overall fitness level.
30 day Run Streak Challenge Still Alive
I started this morning with the aim of doing a workout to improve my weekly runs.
In order to improve my 3-mile times, the most effective way is to use a long run at least once a week.
Tomorrow I will get my 100 pushups in. Not happening again today. I really need pushups to improve my fitness level.
Post-run meal – Grillled chicken thighs and baby red potatoes.
