Happy National Chocolate Chip Day! I won't have time to bake cookies today because of other baking plans, but I'll have to eat a handful of chocolate chips!
My husband and I went on a walk on some of the more secluded Memorial Park trails two days ago. I ran up a couple of hills just for fun - much better than running on a concrete bridge!
I ran 7 miles today (9:08/mi ave pace).The humid 75 degree heat got to me. In the last mile, my legs were heavy (like I'd run 20 miles) and my head ached. Zoe wondered if we were on a run or a walk!
When I got home, my stomach ached, too. A cold drink and a cool shower later and all was well. My weight was on the low side - don't know if that's related to how I felt or just a result of eating less lately.
I drank water every 1-2 miles. I wondered if not eating anything before running was the culprit, but the same thing happened to me back in July when I did eat before my run and drank Gatorade during my run. My not eating before or during runs experiment continues...
