1 - Larabars are NOT good running snacks for me. I've been eating granola bars on my long runs for the last few weeks and they've worked out pretty well so I thought I'd try a Larabar. This was a terrible idea. I almost immediately got a cramp and felt sick for pretty much the rest of the run. They will now only be making the cut as a post-run snack. (I'm shuddering just thinking about how terrible I felt)
2 - The "my legs hate me" feeling really can last an entire long run.
3 - Even when I feel like garbage, I can maintain an ok pace.
4 - Having someone to share your misery is very helpful.
I have no pictures to really illustrate my misery during that run, so instead I'll post a much happier picture of my favourite statues in Boston - taken last year. It's almost Marathon Monday after all.
Any lessons learned this weekend?
