At least I’m pretty sure I’m still alive. It was a tough day for the longest run I’ve ever done. It rained, all day. I decided I wanted to run in the rain and feel alive… Plus, I mean who can run 15 miles on a treadmill? The gym staff have all the televisions set to sports channels of some sort. Seriously, how much more boring can running indoors get? So I drove to the coast and decided to run around Fiesta Island a few times. The first lap went pretty well. I was able to keep up a good pace. I had mapped it out and it was supposed to be 5 miles around the outside loop, but it was 4. I was pretty sure the GPS and pace were right about that. I had put off the long slow run for as long as I could and by the time I finished lap 2, it was starting to get dark. SO, off to the gym to run the other 7 miles. I ate half a pb&j on the way to the gym. I was hungry and I definitely preferred it to gel or a shot-block. I think I’ll be switching to pb&j on long runs more often.
