I heard an ultrarunner say that he doesn't lift weights, but that instead he uses his arms when he runs rather than just let them hang. When I finished running, I noticed tired arms today, and everything else was kind of tired, too, partly because it was warm today - humid and 70-80*. I finished today's 12.5 mile run with a green smoothie. So far, my favorite green combo is yogurt, spinach, frozen banana and canned pineapple chunks (the juice, too). The pineapple is required!
I have a new new hydration belt - the BCG brand fuel belt from Academy ($18). My requirements for belts: no bounce and a big pocket - my phone is 5" x 2.5". I took out the small 8 oz. bottles the belt came with and used my 10 oz. Nathan bottles instead. The belt was too long so I knotted it on the waist band to shorten it. Other than that, it works! (This doesn't beat my Nathan fuel belt, but I needed a 2 bottle belt.)
