This week we experimented with Shot Bloks. At mile 6 we both had one. I will say they are pretty easy to eat as they are soft and kind of dissolved...BUT....they were almost too sweet, and maybe upset my stomach a little. I think I have felt better when I eat the Sweedish Fish or Gummi Bears. It was almost like they gave me an acidic stomachache. I think we may try GU next week.
At mile 13 and 14 I was having to double back on myself to get to 14 miles which kind of wore me out. Next time I just need to run farther out so I don't have to run up and down the street. At mile 14 I was DONE! I was tired and really thirsty this week. I have to say this was not my easiest long run.
I was glad to have Jessica's company though!
Here are my splits:
I was listening to Eminem on my run this morning and had to rewind this part of "Till I Collapse"
'Cause sometimes you feel tired,
feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up
and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse'
Words for me to think about today.
Hope you all have a good week!
