WOO HOO! 18 miles done! I was worried about my training plan calling for 17 this week after how crappy my 15 miler was!
Turns out that I did great on 18 miles! Yes, I was tired. Yes, my legs hurt. But, I made it!
1. Overestimate water consumption. I needed more than one bottle per 6 mile loop.
2. Overestimate Shot Blocks...I tried to ration them. I should've taken more than I needed.
3. Have food waiting in car for post run. I was famished until I get home.
Since I finished running, I have been eating non-stop! I've had a greek yogurt, 2 small sticky buns, a salad topped with steak, corn on the cob, and a slice and 1/2 of pizza. OMG...that's a lot of food!
And now, I relax and ride out this hurricane by staying indoors, eating some more, and plenty of wine. The worst is supposed to be from 4am-8am. I really hope we don't lose power.
