3 New Things: Friends, GU, Ultra
- Two runs with new running friends! Yesterday I ran with Amanda (She takes great photos!) and today I ran with Melissa (She's starting the Couch to 5K Plan!). Time flies when you're talking!
- I received a surprise gift in the mail today. Thanks, GU! Notice that these Roctane powders are labeled Ultra Endurance. That leads to number three on my list...
- I'm thinking about signing up to run my first ultra - the Hogs Hunt 50K. Yesterday I ran 22 miles and today I ran 10.5 miles. I made it through both days without any chafing or blisters, thanks to Body-glide (and petroleum jelly on my feet, too). I felt good during the first part of today's run, but I ran out of energy in the last couple of miles - I need to figure this out! Plus, I'm not usually sore after 20 miles anymore, but after today's run - sore legs!
Interesting post: Should you really eat low fat foods and graze, too? Lately, I've been using whole milk and yogurt. They seem to be more filling so that I can drink/eat less than if I use fat-free.
