Today I ran 150 minutes. The temperature was 80 degrees at the start and 85 when I finished. Way hot for me.
I drank 8 oz. of Gatorade/water every mile, had 3 Gu's and 4 Shot Bloks. I think it was too much sugar. I don't normally eat sugar. I love my carbs, but straight sugar is hard for me to take. Next week I'll trade in one 8 oz. bottle of Gatorade/water for a bottle of all water. Seemed to be about the right amount of liquid, but I still lost 2.2 pounds.
In the middle of the run I traded out my bottles. My wife walks with a large running/walking group. Her car was just the right distance from the house. Got to see quite a few people I know. That made the run more interesting.
Most of my run was in a very wealthy section of Houston so I to look at quite a few very large and beautiful homes.
One more long run before my half in Missoula. Looking forward to the cooler weather there.
I think I should take up
and give up until summer is over, about mid October.
