2. Yep. It happened on a treadmill. 11 miles.
3. I broke it into two sessions of 5.5. It made it seem a little more bearable that way. I listened to Wait! Wait! for the first half and my music for the second half. I started with my Shot Bloks at miles 3 and took one every mile and a half to two miles with some water. I didn't feel perfect afterwards, but I didn't feel absolutely disgusting either. Maybe I'm starting to figure it out?
4. It felt pretty good (especially the first 6 miles). I took the whole "long runs shouldn't be a race" thing to heart and took it nice and slow. I really want Race Day (less than 50 days away now!) to go well and if it takes holding back a little on long run days then so be it.
5. Maaaan I wish I would have planned ahead a little better. None of my "good" sports bras were clean so I just went with a random one I hardly ever wear (not the best choice) and when I got home I found that none of my sweat pants were clean. You can't run 11 miles on a snowy day and put on clothes other than sweat pants.
|Maddux says all that matters is that you nap afterwards.|
Any fueling advice? I think I need to start using Gatorade on my runs in addition to water, but I'm wondering if I should switch it up from Shot Bloks a little. They've been working ok, but I'm thinking there might be a better option.
