I know better than this. I am better than this, but today I was totally dehydrated on my run. At first I felt like I was hungry, then I realized I was THIRSTY. Super thirsty. Like, I want to high jack someone’s garden hose thirsty.
I ended up cutting my run short and doing 9 miles with walk breaks. I was supposed to do 10 today and 10 tomorrow. I have to break up my long run in two parts this weekend since we’re going on a road trip tomorrow morning and my long runs take 3 hours at this point!
So, I guess it’s back to the basics with a reminder that I need to drink at least 3 full bottles of water per day. This was never a problem before, but I think the colder temps and bigger obsession with seltzer have been hurting my water consumption. My water bottle holds 48 oz. I am going to make sure to fill it up and drink it all 3 times a day.
Breakfast was a bunch of different things. When I got home I chugged a ton of water and ate a bowl of cereal. After a shower I made a yogurt bowl and had half a piece of toast with PB. I don’t know if it was the dehydration talking or what, but I just kept eating!
I have a busy fun day ahead of me! Happy Friday, see you in a little bit
