I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend! My honey was out of town this weekend, so I had the house to myself and got lots of quiet time. It was awesome!!
I did a 16 mile run on Saturday!
My battery died right before I reached 16 miles! But I promise I did it!
I also wasn't able to listen to my music the last 5 miles, because the battery was running low. That made it really difficult. I hate that I can't use Runkeeper and listen to music at the same time on my long runs, because of the battery! I'll have to figure something else out...
Before I even got to 2 miles, I got a bad cramp in my stomach. I knew it was because I started my run in the afternoon, instead of the morning. That always happens when I run later in the day.
But I just pushed through it for the next few miles and it went away!
I finally made it to 16! I was really surprised, but 16 miles felt easier than my 15 last week! It was absolutely wonderful! Of course the thought went through my mind "only 10 more, and I'll have run a marathon!"
Of course at this point I can't imagine running 1 more, let alone 10 more!
But, I KNOW I can do it. The reason I know that is because I remember when I could only run 3 miles, I couldn't imagine running 10 more, for a half marathon. So if I can do that, I know I can do this too!
After this 16 miles I could run my finger along my face and get tons of salt!
Why is that? I take 2 GU's during my run, I also drink gatorade and water. Any idea what I'm doing wrong or what else I need to do?
Have an awesome day, friends!!
Did you run this weekend?
Any idea why I get salty?
