Long run - 15 miles
[2:07 (8:28 pace)]
6am: Town lake trail and campus loop, completely dark, almost full moon. Me: exhausted, working through it, steady pace for the whole run. This run was about getting the work done. I love my long runs but today it took a little more mental strength than usual. My glutes and hamstrings are sore and tight. I felt kind of sick for the rest of the morning - couldn't tell if it was extreme hunger or nausea or both.
I went to Magnolia and had a full stack of gingerbread pancakes with bananas and blueberries (carb overload), then slept for 5 hours. I never eat carbs like that anymore. Today I had a feeling that my body wanted it and I was happy to oblige :)
