10 Mile Run
After I ran through Memorial Park this morning, I ran back home to pick up my dog so we could run through the neighborhood together. I like to look at the yards for inspiration. I took a picture of those pretty flowers in the top photo because I may like to do something like that in my yard someday.
I ran 10 miles today and of course, it was hot and humid. It was okay, though. I think that's because I'm treating 10 miles like oh, at least a 15 miler. In other words, when it's this hot, prepare!
And I was prepared... I wore my Nathan hydration belt and brought 20 ounces total of Nuun and flat Coke (1/2 Coke, 1/2 H2O in a bottle), Smarties tart candies and even pretzels, too. The Coke and candy were new for me and worked great. (You can read more about drinking soda on the run at the Nutrition Success blog.) I refilled my bottles with water along the way. This heat can sometimes zap me, but not today.
