See… Told ya I would post 3 times today. I’m such a loser…
Even though I purposely tried to run 9:40 ish miles today, I still felt tired. And I was VERY hungry. To the point that I had a headache at the end of the run and needed to stop on the way home and get a Powerbar and some Gatorade. Amazing… The headache was gone before the Powerbar was. I think I just need to add a bit more to my lunchbox.
Since I am going to start bumping my mileage up every two weeks from now on, starting with twelve this Sunday, I am also going to play with carbo loading a little bit. I don’t really know “how” to do it, but I’m going to read up on it a bit and try some different things, just to see if I feel better during and after those long runs. Starting with pasta tonight!
