Then, I rocked out 18 miles. I had a really good run too! I was nervous about it after last weekend’s fueling issues. But, I did a few things differently today…
1.) Fueled better. I ate a lot yesterday, possibly too much, but it helped. I also fueled during the run better. I took Powerbar chewies and started taking them at the half way point and every other mile after that. Plus I drank Gatorade. It worked.
2.) Tried to pace a little better. I didn’t start out as fast as last weekend. Part of this is due to the route not being downhill for the first 7 miles, but still I tried.
3.) Asked God to make the weather cooler. Okay, that is not completely true, but it was cooler today and that really helped!
The Ice – I had two major requirements of our new couch – and one of them was that it had a chaise. I wanted the chaise so I could easily ice my knees. It was a must have and I’m super grateful we got it.
Breakfast post run – As soon as I got home I drank half a coconut water. I know they are great for you, but I’m still letting it grow on me. Then, I made a massive egg sandwich, apple and a banana (no picture).
I’m super hungry still and am thinking about chips, salsa and a cookie, random.
