Legs tired and stomach was kind of complaining about the 4 pumpkin bars that I ate on Sunday, so walked a lot in the last two miles.

Sunday - October 19

Big family cookout at my sister's place today --- did a bit of hiking after lunch but otherwise, no workouts for today. Loving this crisp fall weather!

Saturday - October 18

  • 3h 28m
  • 16.50 miles
  • 12m 36s /Mi

Supposed to be 17 but hey...started out to be a very good run, met Mary at mile 8 and she ran 3 miles with me, or rather I chased her for 3 miles. Seems like I ran out of steam around mile 13 and went to a shorter run interval. Had calf cramps at mile 15 and walked most of the last 1 1/2 miles. Probably should have taken electrolyte tabs in addition to the gels.

So hard to say if the carb loading helped or did not help.

Standard core routine, 3x
Cannonball routine

Kinda bummed out today -- a planned mtb trip to Danville won't happen because of all the rain. But I suppose there is still time left in the season to get some riding in, as long as Mother Nature cooperates.

I'm experimenting a bit with nutrition and letting myself eat some pasta and pizza to carbo load. Last week my long run went ok but I felt a little underfueled. I definitely function better without gluten and processed stuff during a normal day, but now that marathon training is ramping up, it feels like I need more fuel in the tank.

Got my St. Jude's Hero singlet in the mail yesterday; it's pretty cool. I'll probably wear it for the marathon, maybe over a long sleeved black technical shirt. Call me excited
