Saturday’s 20 Miler

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.

Another “high” for today. . . . my long run!

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!

As soon as I stepped through the door, I made a beeline for food!

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!)

Although, before heading to school, I made a pit-stop at Starbucks to partake in their happy hour: half-priced Frappuccinos! (Tomorrow’s the last day!)

I ordered a tall decaf light mocha coconut frappuccino. (No way did it come off the tongue like that when I ordered it though!)

For the past couple hours, I worked on grades, but I am only about half-way done. I’m going to need to come back tomorrow to finish. Oh well, it’s all good.

I’m off to get some dinner!

    Congrats on a great run and having your grades almost finished! I can hardly believe the school year is almost over, next week is our last normal week. We have our field trip and field day the week after and then a four day week the next! Yay for summer!
