After having 2 awesome 20 milers I never thought I would say that but this 12 miler was painful!! I know why... and it's totally my own fault so I am sucking it up right now...
-I didn't drink my water
-I didn't carbload
-I didn't go to bed early
-I drank too much wine!!
- I slept in 'till 11!!
- I waited until midday to get out the door
It was 25oC and the sun was killing me, I was sweating big time, my contact lenses were burning.... I felt like I weighted 300 lbs not a fun sight... It was getting better around 6 miles when I turned around and the wind was in my face, so refreshing... Anyway, 12 miler in the book with an average pace of 11:34 min/mile.
On a happier note, I went to Point Pelee yesterday and I had a good walk with Rocky there. The point was covered with water though, we couldn't go very far, here is a picture of the pooch and I!
Have a good running week everyone!!!
