I had a game plan. I woke up early and got dressed. All of my gear was ready to go. I ate a piece of bread with peanut butter, drank a little water, took some Aleve and then took some headache medicine. That wasn’t such a good idea, but it worked out fine. I had a headache and it went away. I even had a minute or two to wait for it to be daylight before I headed out for my 16-17 mile run.
It is HOT and HUMID today. I forgot to check the temperature when I started, but by the time I finished, it was 85 degrees with 64% humidity. I finished 16.33 miles feeling hot, dripping in sweat, tired and so, so very glad to be home. It wasn’t pretty but I did it in a pace that I could finish the marathon in time – so I am happy.
Now, I’m going to have an ice bath and that is all I will accomplish today.
Until next time!
