I live about 9-10 miles from work - from central London out to the leafier parts. It has become my goal to run all the way home one day.
I attempted it on Wednesday night (knowing that I probably wouldn’t make the full distance) to see how far I’d get. Apart from getting lost and the weather being completely all over the place, I made it to just over 11k, and nearly 7 miles, my furthest run yet!
As always the first few k were the hardest but then I settled in to it. My biggest problem now is fuel - I felt so blumming weak at the end. I even ate pasta at lunch knowing I’d be running later on.
I’m not a fan of eating before I run (even a banana makes me feel iffy) but feel like I could do with taking snacks with me. I don’t feel like fancy running gels are for me yet, but any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.
