Workouts this week
Friday: Ran a hills workout, which always feels difficult but doesn't add up to much distance.
Saturday: Walked around in downtown Lawrence with friends
Sunday: Attempted nine miles, ran 7.5
Not much to say about this week. Just trying to keep going. Sunday was a pretty rough run -- this training cycle has been full of them and I'm trying not to think too much about what that means for race day.
Thought of the week:
From Runner's World:
"But first, one crucial point: It’s important to understand that you’ll need to adjust your pace in hot weather, both your training pace and your expected race pace. A smart hydration plan does not mean you can run fast in the heat; you can’t. Smart hydration primarily helps you to run healthy. In the marathon and longer distances, carb-laden drinks can also extend your endurance somewhat. But proper pacing for your fitness and the environmental/geographical conditions is always the most important consideration."
