I was supposed to do 14 miles today, but ended up having a really bad run and walking most of the hills and cutting out at 12 miles. I was super defeated 🙁 It really sucks to have a bad run, I feel like crap now. Boo.
But, to keep it in perspective, it’s not the end of the world I have another long run next weekend. The race must go on…
Before I left I had almond butter toast for fuel.
I tried out my hand-held water pack today. Usually I take my fuel belt on long runs, but it’s heavy and I didn’t feel like it.As soon as I got back I had half of a Kashi Crunch Bar.
After a shower I made a huge smoothie! Topped with granola and a scoop of almond butter 🙂
and cereal. I am trying to make sure I re-fuel really well because it’s good for recovery and will prevent overeating later (and tomorrow when my long run hunger really hits!).
Have a great Saturday!
