This morning I ran 8 miles. It was so hot outside that I actually cursed global warming (AGAIN)! This is after using proper protocol for running in the Southeast during the middle of July. It includes, but not limited to the following:
· Supportive running group.
· Having the proper prior running experience.
· Running early.
· Proper hydrating and fueling 48 hours before performance.
· Carrying energy gel.
· Carrying a hydration belt.
· Slowing down.
· Blah, blah, blah…..
Yep, it’s official. I am going to bring my training mileage down (way down), throw in some cross training, and restart my training from the beginning. I will do half marathons in the fall, and maybe train during the winter for an early spring marathon.
At any rate, I am still glad I ran this morning!
