I'm still using G2 for my hydration, though next weekend I'll be packing a water bottle too. After 6 miles the sweat on my lips started making me crave straight water. Salt over-dose! I also GU'd at 2mi, that still seems to work great for me.
My wall is still set at 5 miles, then at about 6.5 I seem to find a second wind. I noticed my form actually improving during my last mile today. I kept telling myself: 'easy, breezy, strong'. Don't know where that came from, but it helped me hold my upper body straighter and keep my feet turning over. I felt like a champ that last mile.
|My 'Champ' pose lol|
Next weekend: 5k on Saturday followed by 9mi on Sunday. (I know, shouldn't race the day before a long run, but I was seriously craving a 5k! And it's to benefit the local animal shelter....my calling!)
