Been a little late in my postings. I am having a busy but profitable work season. This should have gone out two Sundays ago:
Well, I did it on Sunday, 15.75 miles. The first 11 miles were very easy. The last 5 were hard. I was dead afterwards and had trouble walking a little on Monday. Tuesday was a lot better and I ran my usual 8.4 which was hard but I never walked. I have started to use a hydration pack while running. Camel Bak's Catalyst is lightweight and out of the way. On my longer runs I will have to stop to fill it up. I plan on running the 15.75 to the end of the month. I will probably cap it at 18 for the summer months. August will be 20, September will be 22 and October I will run a 23 or 24. This will change if I do not get into New York and have to do DC.
