Only 1 week til the Dam to Dam race. It’s 10 miles or 16km. I have to admit I haven’t kept up the training as I hoped I could. Too many other things going on I guess. But I’m still on track to FINISH the race, but I don’t expect to do any decent time at all. I just want to finish within the 2 hour limit.
This morning I ran my longest run ever – 12.2km. I stopped at the 1 hour mark to drink water and suck down one of those gel energy things. EEEEWw! Those things are disgusting. But they work! I never had an energy drop or felt really tired during the run. I was having that problem earlier with longer runs (over 10k).
I am still trying to find new routes for these long runs. Still exploring the neighborhood. Today I ran out into the polder which I like a lot. I took these photos. It was drizzly and cool and perfect for a long run. Now, I just need to rest up for the big race!!!!
