Yesterday's long run, 13 miles. I wasn't feeling the love, I didn't want to go, but I'm on a plan... I gotta go! So I was then pondering what to wear, decided to wear a long sleeved hoody and no jacket. I went to fill up my camelback and mucked it right up and soaked it through. So I headed out with a hand bottle.
I froze to death! I was fairly ok the whole time I was moving but as soon as I stopped I nearly burst into tears! I had to get me cloud chaser to pick me up in the car whereas I would usually walk home to walk off aches. I spent the rest of the day trying to warm up which I guess means my core temperature had dropped.
I need more than a hand bottle.
I really mucked up, I dont have fond memories of the run and the last 3 miles were a real slog!
Not to forget that I read an article this week stating that 4 hours is the average for a marathon and over that is a bit embarressing! Well prepared to be embarrassed Cloudchaser, it was not a helpful article as it made me question why I'm bothering. I am fully aware that we should not compare ourselves but I was trying to find a bench mark, I just looked in the wrong place.
So anyway, I have purchased a new top and will defo take my jacket to carry if necessary!
