One of today’s “highs“. . . . .there are buds finally on the trees!
I am excited for how green everything is going to look in a couple of weeks!
Now we just need some rain for the brown grass.
Distance: 20 miles
Time: 3 hours
Once again, I split up my run by running 5 miles to my friend Jen’s place, then we ran 10 miles together, and then I ran 5 miles back home. It was the perfect way to break up the distance.
For the majority of the run, I felt really good. It was windy and running against the wind was kind of brutal, but the temperature was comfortable and the sun was a-shining!
I did get really thirsty and needed some fuel towards the end. (I only took one gel packet, which was not enough!) I even started to feel slightly light-headed, which I knew wasn’t good, but I made it!
I was craving something salty + sugar (for quick energy)+ something cold to drink!
Normally I would never drink pop, but I got this free at school and the thought of this carbonated, cold beverage sounded absolutely wonderful after my run today. And it was! (I felt a little better knowing it wasn’t made with high fructose corn syrup.)
There was also tons of water consumed (and other food too)!
After eating, I took an ice bath, and then got ready to head to school to work on grades. (Only 4 more days of school left!)
I ordered a tall decaf light mocha coconut frappuccino. (No way did it come off the tongue like that when I ordered it though!)
