Ran 11.2 miles today getting ready for a half marathon in Missoula Montana in July. Temperature at the start was 78 degrees and 83 when I finished. Happy I made that distance although I was aiming for 11.5 miles. The heat really wears me down. I usually do a 5 run and 1 walk, but close to the end I was doing a 1 run and 1 walk. Need to find a way to not get so dizzy and tired on my long runs on hot days.
Next week I'll cut back the distance goal to 6 miles. Should be able to do well at that distance.
Since I eat half of the calories I burn on my long runs I'll eat well today and enjoy it, especially since my wife and I will be celebrating our 31st anniversary.
