My fueling strategy for the race was to stick with what I know. I had my sport beans and the Gatorade energy chews. The Gatorade chews are delicious and very easy to eat quickly. I had steady energy throughout and no "issues".
My post run treat was a Publix sub with deli chicken and cheddar. It was a real delight!
Thinking about the run, it seems so far out from my race (almost 3 months) to do such a long run, but that's what the schedule says. And I'm a rule follower. I will hopefully get in a few more 16-18 milers and 1 20 miler about a month out. Yes, I should do more long runs, however with my race announcing and travel schedule it gets hard. I also hate to say, but about 6 hours after my run I had a sharp pain on the outside of my foot. No bueno.
I'm still foolishly hoping it will just go away, but I am taking it easy this week. My mileage goes back down next week and then builds back up.
Now I'm off to bed to get ready for a wonderfully busy RunDisney weekend!
What'd you eat for dinner last night?
What's your favorite Disney movie?
Love and doing the 18,
