I hope this is my last long run in Pico. I really need to drive to a better running spot for anything over 8 miles because it gets super tedious around here. And I kinda feel like a weirdo.
This morning I did 13 miles all around town. I have a route that is 9 miles, but had to run through some areas twice. At least I know where the 7-11 is located and I stopped for water!
Then, I filled my handheld water bottle with Gatorade and was ready to go! I used to be super anti-drinking calories – even when I was running! But, I tried drinking Gatorade on my last long run and think it helped me keep going. I don’t like eating while running, but I do need some sugar and salt for longer runs like this.
Right when I came home Matt was scrounging around the kitchen for breakfast. I made him eggs and toast and stole a piece of toast with jelly.
My SIAB runneth over…
I also just cut up a watermelon and ate a ton of it while slicing. It’s one of the perks of being the resident watermelon cutter
