There is a great article in the San Jose Mercury News about the runners who have died in half marathon and marathons since September. Seven people have died trying to go the distance. It’s very sad. The article questions whether or not some people racing are really “fit to race”? Something to think about as more and more people join in the fun.
I know I’m not built like a runner. I assume that I am healthy because I am young, have been running for years, I eat very healthy, have tons of energy and feel good 🙂 But, I haven’t ever gone to a doctor and questioned my health and the tax running has on my body. Just something I’m thinking about…
This morning I slept in and let myself wake up by my own body clock around 7:15am. I had half a PB&J bagel (full size bagel) to fuel my run. I did 16 miles in 2:36:07. I had been keeping a very good pace until the last 3 miles. I ended up taking a lot of walking breaks toward the end.
And brought these Luna moons for the run. I don’t like these very much. I think they tasted like cough syrup. I prefer the chomps better.
When I got back from my 16 miles I sat in a cold water bath for a few minutes (no ice.) and then showered.
I had this protien smoothie with spinach and some Kashi Autumn Wheat cereal. I had to grab something to go because Ben and I had to run a quick errand that was time sensitive. Then, came home to leftover Chinese 🙂
I have only a few hours to get my Halloween costume together! And I really need to do school work too! I am a little overwhelmed.
See you guys later 🙂
