I was pretty much not looking forward to the 10 mile run I needed to do this past Sat. for marathon training, but I got up early to beat the heat to give it a go. I got about 3 miles into the run and realized that I felt pretty good and took the pace up a bit. I ended up finishing the 10 miles in about 2 minutes faster than usual. Here is my recipe for the run:
8h-Good nights sleep
1 bowl-oatmeal with banana (very ripe...like ready for banana bread ripe) and frozen sweet cherries
1 cup-cinnamon coffee
1-new nathan hydration belt filled with H20. (2 small bottles)
I think having the new hydration belt was a huge plus, since it was SOOO hot this weekend. Also, getting new gear is always super fun.
I last blogged about dead legs....they didn't affect me on this run! yay!
