ORN: Friday: 14.4 miles @ 9:44
Monday: 1 mile, avoiding being electrocuted
Got in this week's long run on Friday, as my son Matt and I headed for a guys' weekend in Nashville, enjoying country music.
The run was a good 'un (there's the country influence...) in that I planned to run at 9:45 and had to hold myself back to stay there. Interesting, in that I usually have a Gu about every 5 miles on my long runs, but forgot the gel this time. I felt that lack of glucose by about mile 10.
This week is the big one before the marathon on April 9. I was set to do 5 this morning. But the line of thunderstorms that spawned all the tornadoes over the weekend in Missosuri and Illinois passed through here the same time I wanted to run. The lightening was real...and I decided to not discover my exact coefficient of conductivity.
10 miler before work on Wednesday, then 20 on Saturday, plus the other 5 milers....a busy week.
