Today's run, I felt good when I started, but faded in the end. I think it was the lack of fluids. I didn't drink any water in the afternoon, and it was warm out, my guess is high 70's and you could feel the humidity building, around 5:30pm, when I went for my run. With the weather warming, I need to remember to hydrate myself during the day. Again, what I need to do, is start slower, and negative split my runs. I am too much of a rabbit. Luckily, when I ran the Philly Marathon, and Long Branch 1/2, I was smart enough to start out slow! Hopefully I can make that the norm for all of my runs.
5.2 miles 44:21 (8:32avg)
The last .20 was 1:51
I checked my stats out for the year and here's where I am at:
86 runs for the year
548.93 total miles
75,292 calories burned
Total for June: 65.47miles
Gotta love the info from the Garmin!
Here's a few more interesting stats. My totals since I got my Garmin at the end of last July:
160,438 calories burned
That's pretty cool !
Looks like I won't hit 100 for the month, but that will change shortly, as my fall marathon training will start in at the end of July.
I think I'll take Wednesday off, and get back out there on Thursday.
