I’m starting to spend two percent of my week just running. With every long run comes a new personal best for distance. My pace is slowing appreciably (closer to my training schedule’s recommended pace, ironically), and I’m alternating between hunger pains and leg pains. It’s becoming apparent that my gels will not keep up unless I prepare for each long run as if it were a race: a full meal the night before, adequate sleep, pre-run snacks and post-race meal. It’s a regimen bordering on lifestyle, but it might be the only way to keep pushing my limits…
