Happy Fitness Friday Bog Hop! Welcome any new readers.
Today is going to be an easy relaxing day for me. I have been at school everyday this week and being that it is summer...I really would like a day without seeing a classroom.
So I have 15miles on the schedule tomorrow and I want to feel good and strong for it. I know I can get through the miles I just want to do it without dying out. Last week I freaked out on my 14miler because I ran out of water with no where to stop. So I got a plan this week for the run. Dud will be joining me (though he does not need to do 15miles for his half marathon training!!) for the full 15miles. Manda will meet up 4-5miles into the run. So I will make sure that there is water at that car. Which we will be seeing again at mile 10. Then Hey Hey and Robyn will be joining us around mile 5-6. So we can have water/Gatorade at their car for mile 8-9 too!
Yea it is going to be a nice flat loop all on bike path. I am really getting myself ready for running on a small path versus road.
Now for what to eat and drink today. It isn't too hot so I don't think I need to over drink today. But I will have my water with me at all times. I also get a little goofy and not allow myself to drink sodas the day prior to a long run or race. Anyone else?
Now I am already not doing good with the eating. It is almost 10am and I haven't eaten breakfast. Bri is even still asleep!! Maybe pancakes?? Do you eat more carbs the day before or do you try to balance it out with protein and carbs and fiber?
Let me know what you think about fueling for long runs.
