Another week closer to the Disney Marathon...
Saturday is my designated long run day and I headed out last Saturday to a nice crisp fall morning. The running was slow going at the beginning, but about 4-5 miles into it I found my pace and was averaging 8:45 to 9:30 minute miles, depending on the hills. The run felt great.
When I got home I was ready to jump into a nice hot shower and eat some food, but I had to wait since I LOST MY KEY!!! During the run it had apparently stuck to my ipod as I pulled it out of my pocked and fell out. I'm still not sure where it ended up, luckily a friend with an extra key to my place was home. There was a lot of excitement/nerves for a few minutes.
This week's long run is 16 miles. I'm going to try some new gels during the run to see if I can tune in my nutrition during the long run. Hopefully it goes well.
Happy halloween everyone!
