Never say never. I used to look at people running with bottles of water strapped on their butts and think “I would never run with all of that stuff on”. I never wanted to be ‘that lady’. Yeah. Never say never.
Look at what I got:
I ran 13 miles wearing it this morning. I was worried that I’d feel the water sloshing around or that it would be in the way somehow. Neither of those things happened. It felt fine and I really wasn’t bothered by it at all.
Here’s the problems I had with it:
1. I had to use both hands to put the bottle back in so I did have to slow down a little after taking a drink.
2. Nothing to do with the belt/bottles: I couldn’t ever decide when to actually take a drink. I guess I need to decide before hand when to hydrate.
So… Two Fridays in a row of 13 milers. I felt much better today than last week. I kept a pretty good pace throughout. I ran in two big circles – which I do not like. I decided to stay in the park on softer surfaces because my knee started hurting early on. I figured I’d give it a break!
The second time around the loop I was a little annoyed. I don’t like running around in circles…
I got home feeling proud of myself and that is a great feeling!
Until next time!
