I decided to go for a 18 mile run today
I drank a protein shake filled my camelback with water tucked in my phone/ipod and a few pretzels and a pack of clif bar shot blocks (yum)
I felt great about 50 degrees and sunny perfect running weather. and my Garmin 305
plan was to run out along a bike path to 9 miles away then turn back voila 18 miles
well out the door I wen running 10-11 min/mile pace wrong wrong wrong toooooooo fast I would pay for this BIG time!!!!
around mile 7 I stopped to pee and ouch I had?? diaper rash minus the diaper?? ouch my underwear is chaffing me.
so anyway I went on to mile 8 in El Segundo I had to turn back no way to press on to mile 9 so I turned back feeling OK
I was hungry but dummy brought 3 pretzels?? and shot blocks all gone STARVING!! water does not provide fuel.
I walked and ran home barely surviving but I did it! 17 miles in 4 hours.
OK 26.2 miles is really playing with my brain if 17 was this difficult I am glad I still have more than 30 days to get ready.
OK breathe relax. eat I am starving!
