#TrainingTruth: Running outside is easy on beautiful fall days.
Since Daisy twisted her ankle and couldn't run, I came home after school and ran with my husband. We enjoyed the beautiful fall foliage surrounding the pond. I love when easy runs actually feel easy.
#TrainingTruth: It's hard to run well when you feel like you have a full stomach.
Today was a solo run after school on one of our usual routes. I went faster than I should have (probably because I was alone) and had to walk a couple of times. Then it felt like everything I'd eaten was on the verge of, well, something.
#TrainingTruth: Not enough pre-run fuel equals not enough gas in the legs.
The night before I didn't eat a runner friendly meal and then I wasn't feeling my usual pre-run meal so I had a couple of peanut better & jelly crackers on my way to meet Daisy (yes, she's back!). A couple of miles into the run, my stomach growled. Need I say more?
How do you make sure you are fueling right?
