Since this run I have ran a run that was "about 8" at Wildwood Lake in Harrisburg. Then I ran an "at least" 10 mile run in Hershey. Tomorrow I will be running an "at least" 12 mile run at City Island.
I have started working on my fueling strategy. So far I've been taking a Clif Bar (r) shot gel citrus- "Key in on this lemon + lime masterpiece. Light, refreshing, and ready to rock, run, and roll." To find out more click here. It was worked fairly well for me, but I'm looking for more "consistent energy" and for that I like to look no further than than shot blocks. I'm learning more about this, but if you want to learn more feel free to go here.
One of the huge benefits of running with Team In Training/The Leukemia Lymphoma Society is that I am running for something/someone greater than myself. When the going gets tough I think about how those who are fighting with Leukemia or Lymphoma have/are struggling. That is what gives me the strength to keep going when I don't think I can go any further.
Tomorrow I run 12 miles with the team and I will write a post to tell all about it. Going back to fueling I will have at least a banana, peanut butter/honey and toast and my Greek yogurt (Chobani).
Thanks for your support!
