Towards NP Long Run

July 24, 2011 (Morning)

Exercise Type: Run

Hip still not 100% but I needed to get in long runs b/c that is the most important thing in my training. I'll probably do some intense cross-training the next few days to ensure I get back to 100% and stay in shape. Running today I could feel some minor aggravation, but it was nothing serious.

Up at 6am out the door at 620. Didn't eat enough before this run and I was hungry the whole time. I still felt strong for most of this run. The last 4ish miles I was starting to wear down and the hill were posing a problem. I've experienced this problem the last 3 weeks, but I'm not concerned at all. I'm supposed to be tired at this point b/c my mileage is high and training fairly intense. The taper 2 weeks before will make the difference to keeping fast at the end of the race.

I mapped out a pretty cool and different course so that kept me interested for 2+ hours.

212, Quail, Woodland, Thorn Hill Rd, Brush Creek Rd, Red Belt across 19, Warrendale Community Park, Mt. Pleasant Rd, Franklin, Mt. Pleasant, Dean, Red Belt, across 19, Brush Creek Rd, Knob, Sewickly Farms, Woodland, Golden Grove to Sunset and back to Quail.
