Just Keep Running (Day 63) Like 0 Twitter Tedrick Kelly Follow Aug. 7, 2016, 3:33 p.m. in Sport Views: 676 Like us on facebook Survival. After last week's issues on my long run, I decided to change things up a little. For one, I wanted to get started earlier so I was shoes to the payment by 5:30am this morning. My other change is I substituted my cola with Gatorade this morning. In addition to my hydration Pak, I added a small palm bottle filled with Nunn. It was my first time giving Nunn a try, so I was curious to see how my body would react. Starting out it was actually still dark, and I didn't think to bring my headlamp. Needless to say I was running blind for a good deal of my first 3 miles, thankfully there were no issues outside of running through a couple areas of mud due to rain. About 4 miles in, I gave myself the first squirt of my Nunn and I immediately felt a small boost of energy. Throughout the run I alternated between Nunn and water each mile. Ran into my first issue around mile 6 when I ran up to a blocked off bridge. I wasn't expecting that and honestly thought about jumping the gate because I started having to double back, but decided against it. There is no telling what danger lay ahead. So I unwillingly turned back to try and find a way around. Luckily I had done some run groups nearby so I knew where another entrance to the trail was located. Low and behold when I got to the alternate entrance..... It was closed off too. At this point I'm getting frustrated. My last resort was to cross a 4 lane highway and hope to find another entry point. Lucky for me 3 was a charm and I found another entry point. I reached my 8 mile turnaround point and headed back. I was happy to see a few people out on the trail on my trip back because there was No One when I started out. For my last 3 miles I decided to switch to the Galloway method just to see if I saw a difference in pace. Low and behold my pace on the mile 16 was the fastest of any of the previous 15. I may have to reconsider the Galloway method. Finished with 16.07 miles logged. #running #fitness #training Published by Tedrick Kelly Share Mail Messenger Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Comments Related Article Sport Chicago Bulls 90 Indiana Pacers 85 Sport Chicago Bulls 123 Toronto Raptors 118 Sport Can the NBA Add 2 New Expansion Teams?
