Ran 23 miles (4,5,10,3)
Walked 1 mile
No other exercises
I have been following two training plans, kind of putting them together to get ready for my first ever half marathon at the end of April. I make sure to do the longest run either recommend and tend to also end up over the miles for both plans since they have different length runs and when I meet people to run, we try to go for 4 or 5 miles even if that is not what is written on the plan. This weeks ten mile run felt hard. I was super thirsty, maybe because I did it at the end of the day, but I have trouble drinking while running and if I stop I don't want to start again. Even in races, I love the idea of a water stop, but unless I actually stop I spill the water and choke and always think it might have been better to have skipped it. How do you manage to drink while still running? Straw cups help a bit and I bet a water bottle with a closed sort of top might help too. I've been pondering if I can run the whole half without drinking anything and I am thinking I will end up too thirsty at the end and compromise energy as I get thirstier. Things to figure out in the next two months!
