The Bare Necessities

The 17 miler went great. I listened to my body. I drank A LOT of water {emptied Max right at the end}. I went through 4 GU's {three during and one after}. I had a good cool down. I stretched really good. That night I jogged a couple miles and stretched really good again. ALL of those things made a HUGE difference. Today I feel like a million bucks!!

A few things I learned from this one that I better remember for those next few log runs; especially the BIG one... 26.2!

*Bring Chapstick {putting it on before leaving isn't enough}
*Wear Sunscreen {even if it's still "winter" and chilly, the sun will still fry me... he did}
*Body Glide {or SOMETHING}

I have a couple weeks before the next big one. I am going to add hills into these shorter runs to prepare myself for the hills on the marathon. I think it's going to make a big difference!
