Monday I was so pumped to go get fitted for new running kicks.
Then daycare called and said Bub was sick.
Just another reason I will be happy when they are home.
So I wasn't able to go Monday but I am going today. Our work schedule is crazy this week and we have another dental class on Friday so today is my last chance.
Everyone that I have ever asked for running advice has told me the same things.
Remember to hydrate.
Find the fuel that works for you
and invest in good running shoes.
They make it sound so easy.
I will be the first person to say I have no idea what I'm doing. I have a constant feeling of being overwhelmed with all of the "science" behind running and prepping for long runs.
There are so many different products out there for fueling and rehydrating. That's not even including running shoes... I feel like if I'm at a race or by some weird chance I decided to run with a friend and I am using a different products they are going to disown me and announce to the running world that I'm faking.
"Um what is that in your hand? There's no way you are going to make this 7 mile run if you don't have any Gu with you. We will just meet you back at the car."
So today I'm taking step one. Shoes.
I also got a sample of Nuun watermelon from a friend to try on my next long run. I would also like to try Rehydrate from Advocare if anyone wants to send me a sample! Help a girl out.
As far as fuel last run was the first run I felt I needed to fuel during and I tried shot blocks.
I LOVE shot blocks. The taste is amazing, and it's like eating gummy candy.
Except when I'm running.
It got stuck in my teeth and all I could focus on was how soon I could brush them.
I'm going to look for something else today and see how it goes.
I would love advice or suggestions... and that goes the other way too.
If there is anything you would like to know or have any questions feel free to ask!
