Marathon Training: Week 11

Last week’s long run was very hot, very slow, and very sweaty, but I did it and I came in just under the pace that Nike set for me. It’s been so hot that I haven’t been taking in any fuel besides water/Gatorade during my runs, so I’m bringing along different fuel sources to see what my body is willing to eat. So far, this Sunday’s Starbursts are the winner.

Michael and I went away for a night last week, on a trip that included a lot of beer and not-so-great food options, so I’m happy that I made it to the gym both the morning of the trip and to the hotel’s fitness centre the morning after.
