Up and out early this morning to avoid the heat and to get the run out of the way to clear up time later this morning to play taxi driver for some family members.
I figured I was heading out early enough that with the lower temperature I wouldn’t need to bring quite as much water – bit of a mistake there.
I did 3 laps around my neighborhood this morning for a total of 13.1 miles – first lap was just over 39 minutes, second right around 38.5 and last one was a tough push to get 41.5 mostly because the heat was coming up and I could tell I was getting dehydrated. Crap. I basically took enough water with me for 2 laps (generally won’t do anything like Gatorade on 13.1 or less in training) and that bit me.
Have to keep reminding myself to take a bit more than I think I need (especially in the summer)!
