Hello dear running fiends 👹
Woke up today to another gorgeous sunny morning and I was eager to get out before it got too hot. So after some toast and peanut butter, with an hour to digest, off I popped to find out if last week’s 14k run was a flook.
I also thought I should start experimenting with some on the go fuel. I was in Holland and Barrett buying nuts last week (I am part squirrel), and saw this seemingly natural and useful fruit purée things that you can use on a run. At 9k, feeling confident I would be going on to 14k plus, I slurped some down. It tasted VILE. Then, 10 mins later, my stomach agreed, and started to hurt. Ah well, guess that’s not right for me then! Next week: Peanut Clif bar. Watch this space.
Quick Q: is Tailwind in your water enough to fuel a HM? Haven’t tried that yet.
In other news, my VO2 max drops a point after a long run. WTF?!
Happy sunny Easter running, chums!
