Me and Robin. 15K (9.3 miles). Longest long run evar. We didn’t do our long run yesterday because Robin was out of town, but all the better since certainly fulfilled my strength training requirement yesterday. So we ran at 3pm today instead. Ugh. Things that went wrong here:
- I lifted 2000 pounds yesterday.
- Running at the end of the day never works out that well.
- 70F. Too hot.
- I wasn’t well hydrated before we started.
- I didn’t eat lunch.
- It was an emotionally draining day as well as physically draining.
It took us almost 2 hours because of stopping to stretch twice, and stopping several times for water breaks. I was super parched. Ugh, not pleasant.
And I forgot that it is my birthday. Yay.
