Long Run: 5 miles

Today’s run felt like I was in slow motion.  It was like the dream I have where I’m being chased by bad guys running at normal pace and I run away like I have cemented shoes.

I may have gotten off to a late start and I don’t think I’ve been hydrating myself enough during the week. I ate a banana with a forkful of almond butter.  Bananas eaten with a fork taste more like a meal.  Another issue was that I felt really thirsty and I didn’t take my water bottle with me because I was carrying my giant iPod Touch (the iPod shuffle wasn’t charged).  I stayed dehydrated for the sake of vanity.

I walked a few times for about 30 seconds each time.  I don’t know why but I always feel like I’m cheating myself out of a successful workout.  I didn’t charge my Garmin and I left the house with only 25% battery life.  It died at mile 4 but I know I ran an extra mile because I’ve gone that route before.

I was planning on having my second breakfast but 10:00 seems too late since lunch is only about 2 hours away.  Now I’m sipping on some iced coffee with a scoop of vanilla whey protein.  I wouldn’t exactly call it delicious.
