Well, my last post i was still trying to get a long run accomplished! 7 or 8 or bust...it was a total bust that weekend! Another call to my husband to come pick me up.
My sister had been telling me to try these chews that she had used (she is hypoglycemic as well) and she had good results so i went and stocked up at Dick's with some different flavors to try.
My next run with them was great! I eat 1-2 before i head out for my run depending on how long i plan to run and then about 30-40 minutes in eat another 1 or 2 and continue this throughout my run.
I did finally accomplish a 9.5 mile, it was supposed to be 10 but i settled with 9.5. I am going to try some other things with nutrition as well but not trying anything new before my next run...which by the way is this coming Sunday! I am so excited to go home to run their inaugural half marathon! And...i get to run it with my sister, so excited about that as well!
My favorite flavor is orange and pink lemonade...haven't tried this flavor...
I have started having some hip pain again...big double UUG! I know exactly what it is (my IT band) i had trouble with this a yr or two ago. I visited a sports medicine dr last time when it got pretty bad so at least i know what i'm dealing with and know some stretches that hopefully should help. I am hoping it stays to a minimum since i am registered for a half marathon this week, another in October and then a full marathon in December!
My goal for this weekend is of course to beat my 1:57:05 is that not everyone's goal each time to beat their pr?? BUT, am i ready to do that...i have no idea, my training up to this point has been extremely frustrating and i have struggled obviously so we will just have to see how it turns out.
Happy running! I have an easy week with easy runs till Sunday!
