WDW Marathon Training – Week 8

Wow! Training is going really well! N and I ran 9 miles yesterday. The trail that we run on goes through a nature preserve and is mostly semi paved or hard packed dirt. It is also very shaded due to the trees that arch over the path.

We started at 7:20 am so it was a bit chilly and for the first mile or so we were almost wishing for jackets. Around mile 2 we started warming up and after that the weather was great. We finished our run before it got to hot. We also got to see a heron relaxing by the river.

This was also my first long run with my new shoes! More on them in the next post…
