Today I ran a whopping 19.2 miles toward my Goofy Challenge training. I did a 5 mile walk yesterday to mimic a “Goofy Weekend Experience”. It felt good to do some distance, but I was dragging those last 6 miles. One thing I still need to work on is pacing. My Garmin is helping a lot, but I still find myself speeding up too soon in the overall distance. And I could have used another Accel Gel today too.
I’m thinking of trying to add some Accel powder to my drinking water [camel bak] initially since that’s what I’m used to on my shorter runs. The constant sport drink seems to do my system better than the Gel “dump” every 45 minutes.
I hope all your runs went well this weekend that you enjoyed the cooler temps!
