This morning I finished my longest training run for the Carlsbad Half Marathon coming up on January 23rd. I am training with the VAVI running club that has made training so much more fun! Last year, I ran this same race but did all the training by myself. I wasn’t very organized and would run 5 days one week and only 1 time the next week. The longest run I completed by myself was 9 miles so this year I’ve definitely stepped it up!
I finished the race last year with a time around 2:20. I had an IT band flare at mile 5 where I could barely walk but shortly after was able to run the rest (thankfully). This year, my goal is to beat that time. I would like to run in under 10min./mile pace but we’ll see. Someday, I will break the 2 hour mark.
To fuel my run, my breakfast was some homemade wheat bread (see previous post), PB2 and a banana.
Mid-run fuel included two gels that gave me a caffeine boost.
Here are the stats from my run..
Done and done.. now I have some rugby to watch.. Have a great Saturday =)
