In two weeks my friends Bob, Penny, & Sam are conquering the Shamrock on the shores of Virginia Beach with my husband and I. They are all front, middle, & (me) back of the pack runners. Once the gun goes off we'll all be off and running our "own" race. After today's training run, I'm not sure where my pace may be but I'm hopefully going to beat my old PR 2:18. My hopes were to run 13 today and it started off pretty well. Around 9 1/2 the "shim sham" started and I could feel the old tank emptying pretty fast, I fueled up with gatorade/water and sport beans at mile 6 but I don't think it was enough. I pushed really hard trying to fight the urge to just walk. At 10.94 miles I turned the "baby" off and decided to walk the last two miles home. The good news is, I think my problem was fuel and not pain. The knees were ok, I just had no energy. The walk home was beautiful, 73 degrees! Thank you Nelly for getting me through the hard parts of my run today!
Now off to have my Green Smoothie and roll around with foamy!
In case you didn't catch it....
