It was a tough, tough 10 miles. The heat was more intense than we thought it would be, the water went down faster than we though it would, and the sun was a bit relentless. The only thing that felt better than I thought they would were my legs! Sure they were tired by the end of the run, but I didn't want to stop running because my legs were tired, I wanted to stop running because it was hot and "all over" tired. That was surprising to me- my longest run since the half marathon on May 29th had been 7 miles. So that definitely felt like a win!
The heat? Not so much of a win, but the Firecracker made it worth it. (and speaking of red white and blue- Happy 4th of July to the Americans out there!)
What gets you through the hot long runs? Any favourite post run treats?
