I ran my longest distance since my marathon yesterday. It was a beautiful day and the 14 miles were done in 2:21! That’s pretty good for me. Could have been even faster, but my poor buddy was having tummy troubles :( It happens to me a lot and I felt so bad for her!
I failed at hydration though. I will not run without water anymore. And I will not leave for a significant distance without gatorade. I don’t like gu or cliff shots because they hurt my stomach, so I will have to have the gatorade as soon as I’m done. It always takes a near disaster before I take adequate care of myself which is stupid! I know better! I just get cocky!
Last week I also fell back in love with running. I wasn’t totally out of love, but I hadn’t had a run that I didn’t want to end for a long time. I ran 6.5 on Tuesday just because it was a beautiful day and when I got back to the gym, I was sad! I wanted more! It was a fabulous feeling.
I also hit my highest mileage week in a long time. 35 miles. I don’t usually have the time to run that much but I can’t stay inside in such great weather (finally).
Tomorrow I am tentatively planning to run 10 miles. I am not sure if it will happen because I have to work, but that’s the plan, man :)
