7 miles! I had some stomach issues after last weeks run, on the way home, cramping. I was worried about that today but I took extra care to hydrate well yesterday and this morning. I used my new hand held water bottle filled with Nunn sports water, and since it had been 4 hours since breakfast I ate five of these yummy Honey Stinger energy chews. I sipped the water all during the run.
Man, do I sweat! Look at that hat!
My stomach started cramping around mile five. I was so disappointed, I almost turned around to go back to the car, but I didn't. It got better. I was able to finish. I did a couple of short walk breaks when the stomach thing started, but over all I am thrilled with #1, actually doing 7 miles, and #2, doing my long run at an improved pace for me.
