I missed my long run yesterday, but the Husband is working from home today. So Iâ€™m about to put Henry down for Nap #1 (donâ€™t you wish you napped so many times a day that they were numbered?) and go on a Monday morning 12 miler. Iâ€™m currently pumping myself up. Letâ€™s do this! Letâ€™s do this!
Iâ€™m curious to see how this is going to go because I ate something different this morning. Well, it was my usual breakfast (eggs) but normally before a long run, I have a peanut butter sandwich. Gotta stick with what you know, right? But I just couldnâ€™t do it today. I get so sick of PB sandwich by the end of training!
Hash browns, fruit, spicy eggs. I shared my banana with Henry. And he shared with the dogs.
Two questions for you:
When doing a race, how close to the final distance do you run during training? Iâ€™ll run race distance or beyond for 5Ks and 10Ks but usually max out at 11 or 12 miles for a half. For my marathons, I maxed out at 20 and 22 miles.
And what do you eat before a long workout? Anyone else SICK of peanut butter sammies?!
