ast week. This week, I had a recovery week. Here are a few posts that I found while I was "recovering" between eating banana bread and watermelon.
Book Review: Waterlogged by Tim Noakes at IRunFar: "Drink only to thirst and ultrarunners don't need salt tablets." I knew about the water, but not the salt.
Interview: Nate Jenkins Tips on Eating and Training for a Marathon: "Don't eat anything 4 hours before a marathon." (40 minutes into this interview.) I've been running without eating first unless I'm running long. I might try this for long runs.
Badwater 135 Mile Race: The next time I think I'm suffering in the heat, I'll look at these photos to see what real suffering looks like.
Bixby Bridge, CA - It's almost like you're at this Big Sur Marathon location on Google Street View. I ran the Big Sur Marathon in 2010. If you can, run it!
I've joined Pinterest. So far, I've collected home decorating and flower bed ideas. Visit me there, too, if that's your cup of tea or Gatorade!
Today I ran 8 humid miles with some puddle-jumping. Mile splits: 10:04, 9:52, 9:44, 9:47, 9:39, 9:40, 9:16, 9:59. Ave: 9:45/mi. It felt pretty good to run "comfortably hard" today.
