My training plan called for 39 miles and I ran 45 miles. Yes that's an insane amount of miles. It was weird this week due to my race falling on Sunday.
Sunday: 16 miles
Monday: 4 miles
Thursday: 7 miles
Saturday: 18 miles
On Sunday we ran Emerald City Half Marathon. My schedule called for 16 miles. So Chris and I got up at 4:45 am to get to the race in enough time to run 3 miles before.
We met up with a few girls from MIT in our corral. They are so funny.
It was a great race! Afterward we met up with a few more friends and feasted on wings and rum.
I really struggled the last few miles due to the humidity and being tired. So I decided to keep myself busy with pictures. This was at 16.5 miles.
Ok so about fuel....
For breakfast I ate an English muffin with jelly and a banana before I left the house. Then I took 2 GU Chomps with me (Watermelon no caff & Strawberry w/ caff.). I think I like the caffeine better so I'll just be taking those from here on out. I also tried out a new recovery drink after my run today that I really liked. It's called Organic Fuel by Organic Valley. It was super delish and has 26g of Protein in it. I ofcourse opted for Chocolate. This is definitely my favorite recovery drink by far.
