13 Mile Run, Short Run & Links
|Flower at Memorial Park|
Yesterday's 13 miler certainly beat last Tuesday's 12 miler when I fell. Surprisingly, my scraped arm hurts a little when I run and jostle it, but it's not too bad. I ran a 10:01/mile average pace and ate a Gu gel at miles 5 and 9 to keep up my energy. After running ten miles, I went home to get my Weimaraner, Zoe, so she could run, too.
Today I ran an easy 8 miles at a 10:22 pace. I'm eating my post-run whole wheat pancakes now. Yum!
This and That:
Study Shows Eating Beets Improves Running- I'm glad I like beets!
Eat Full-fat Cheese- I usually eat full-fat dairy foods.
Sweat Science: Optimal Carbohydrate Dose for Endurance- Try everything before race day, though!
Thank you for all of the kind comments left on my last post! Happy running!
