Hello everyone and Happy Friday!
On tap for today is a 16 mile progressive run. I'll be going out later on today, waiting for cooler weather and for Ward to get home from work!!! I have a crazy busy weekend which is why I'm pushing the 16 miler up to today. Wish me luck! I don't really do well with long mileage later on in the day.
To get me ready for tonight, I'll be using some of my favorites.
That's a no brainer! No chaffage. Bright, fun patterns. Lightweight and smooth material so when I'm dripping wet from the crazy humidity, my shorts won't be dripping wet as well.
Stable 26 has become a staple in my running sock collection. I've had very good luck wearing them and plan on wearing them for quite some time. They are thin enough so my feet do not overheat, stretchy so my toes do not feel cramped, and have the padding on the heels so my shoes do not slip. Even in shoes that typically didn't slip before, my feet feel like they are one with my shoes when I run. No more annoying readjusting of the shoes. Perfect fit every time.
I have to make sure my feet are happy in the shoes I choose. I would prefer to wear the Skechers Ultra tonight. But they have been retired. They told me last week no more runs. I am thinking I'll head out in my Go Run 3's tonight. They are light and cushy as well.
Most of the time I hydrate quite well. I usually drink a gallon of water a day. I definitely hydrate during my runs as well and I love bringing my CamelBak with me, especially with longer mileage.
During the day today, I'll continue to drink my water. All day. And will be careful about not taking in too much caffeine. Too much caffeine and long runs do not mix for me! But Pure LYFT is going to be my afternoon pick me up because I mix it with water and it's quite gentle on my stomach.
Pure LYFT is an energy stick that has zero calories and is a natural, clean caffeine and has the same amount of caffeine as one tall cup of coffee. I like that there are no artificial sweeteners, it is sweetened with stevia.
