Saturday: 17 MILE RUN! (My longest run thus far)
I feel strong and confident after last weeks training. It feels amazing to be running again and I have really enjoy mixing in cross training with my running - I hope this serves as a huge injury prevention!
Nerves were getting at me all week in anticipation of my LR... but I pulled those
17 miles and could not be happier. = )
I tried a new fuel plan on my long run that I would highly recommend you giving a try:
Instead of using these >>>>>>>>>>>>>
I would suggest using..........................................
DATES! I first got the idea from Michael Arnstein, (AKA The Fruitarian). The man is amazing to say the least - - Anyone who can run a 100 mile ultra then win a marathon 2 days later knows a little something about fitness!
These little gems have several health benefits you can Google about; but most importantly, they are an ALL-NATURAL fuel boost. On my run, I found them to be very easy on the stomach and an almost instant energy boost!!
