For some reason the very fancy website that let's me down load all my stats is not letting me upload the results to my Blog lately. That's okay. I'm probably the only one interested in the nitty gritty anyway. Though, those postings did allow me to share the brain droppings that occurred to me out on the road. Today's is:
The difference between a long run and a really long run: On a long run, you bring water. On a really long run, you bring water and a snack.
I can't believe that I'm the kind of person who runs far and long enough that I need to eat. Weird. But if the occasion arises and you need a snack while you're running, I recommend mixed nuts and dark chocolate chips. Num num. (But not too many).
It was a very windy 15 miles this morning. I am looking forward to a step back week next Saturday (only have to do 11) but mid-week I am up to doing 8 miles on Wednesday mornings. Ouch.
Still managing to pound out miles quicker than 9:00 pace even with walking/water breaks. I'm not willing yet to name my goals for the marathon. For the 1/2, though, well.... Maybe next week I'll come up with a number.
