I kinda wished I could have titled this post “20 mile Break Dance” and tell you how I did crazy break dancing moves on my run today and got the cars passing by to honk. But, that would be a lie.
After Panera Bena nd I hit up Costco for samples, I mean groceries. When we got home I had some yogurt, pineapple and cereal. I wasn’t hungry, but felt depleted. Long run days are so confusing for my hunger signals 🙁 I am never hungry on long run days, but feel run down. Hmmmm.
Dinner was a big salad and some of Ben’s twice baked potato (that I made). Those chickpeas were hanging out in my fridge for a week so they may bad, but they tasted fine so I hope I won’t die.
I don’t use any of the fancy features of my Garmin because I am a lazy motherf-er, but really wanted to know how bad my pacing was today. Well, here is evidence that I am screwing myself with bad pacing:
Mile 1 – 9:21
Mile 2 – 8:42
Mile 3 – 8:58
Mile 4 – 9:03
Mile 5 – 8:51
Mile 6 – 9:21
Mile 7 – 9:32
Mile 8 – 8:59
Mile 9 – 9:26
Mile 10 – 10:39 (walk break for Shot Blocks)
Mile 11 – 9:29
Mile 12 – 9:01 (with Ben, had to keep up with him!)
Mile 13 – 9:51
Mile 14 – 10:32
Mile 15 – 10:18 (got bit by a bug on my neck/shoulder area here, was pretty sure I was going to pass out or die, but it didn’t happen)
Mile 16 – 9:41
Mile 17 – 11:11
Mile 18 – 11:41 (seriously, why was I even bothering?)
Mile 19 – 11:33
Mile 20 – 12:24 (um, this was mostly walking, obviously)
The moral of the story is I need to slow my roll in the beginning and stop all that walking. Now I am actually feeling a little hungry, I’m off to have a Vitatop with PB…
