After work today I knew I wanted to run but I actually worked through lunch and had only had a granola bar for a snack about 2 hours prior to getting home so I changed, grabbed some Sharkies and headed out for a 5-7 mile run. I had a route that could be turned into any mileage from 4-8 miles depending on when I turned around so I figured I would just go with how I was feeling which ended up being a 5.5 mile run. I refueled with Sharkies at mile 3 which definitely helped considering I had skipped lunch which is definitely a no-no when you are planning a long run later in the day. Lesson learned because my energy levels were low and I ran slower than expected but all in all it was still a great run.
I am just happy I am getting back to building my mileage up because marathon training his right around the corner!!!
