Just oat meal before I left this morning. I really don't normally eat anything before my training runs. This is something I'm trying to change. I notice for the most part I almost always eat before a race and I've decided to try it before my training runs also. I'm thinking it might help in getting a little more pep in my runs. Very rarely do I bring GU with me also unless its a really long run. I tried blok shots for the first time today and I like them. Blok shots, GU and gatorade(for the house), and cases of water, every week will bring my grocery bill up by at least 15%. I'll try it for a few weeks and see how it goes. May even go online see if I could get some of this stuff bulk.
My run this morning went well. I try not to over do it on Fridays because I'm never sure what I may decide to do on a Saturday : race or not race?. But today I felt good and it was nice and cool so I went ahead and did 10 miles averaging about 10:20 pace and walked after for additional 1.5 miles.
To all who is racing this weekend have a great race!!!
