Yesterday was the end of Week 6 of my training schedule for our 50/50 training. This week ended in a double long run day. We did a 30K in the morning and a 15K in the evening. The 30K went better than I was expecting, we cut 2 minutes off our last pace times for a measly 25K.
Now with that said, we did a 7/1 run walk today for the runs. One of the things I’ve experienced which backs up like a bajillion other folks who’ve tried it is that my average pace goes up in a significant way when I intentionally run walk.
I tried a new fuel today, crunch peanut butter+Swerve+cocoa powder+ginger powder and coconut oil as well as a new drink mix, Ultima in Orange and Raspberry.
I’m not sure if it was the experimentation of different fuels, but for the 30K and around mile 10 the heat got up to 90 and kept going and the humidity was off the chart but by mile 15 I was feeling pretty queasy which is pretty unusual for me. I don’t do queasy much.
Bunny is having some issues with her knee, might be time for new shoes or less running or more core exercises. I’m always having issues so it’s just par for the course for me.
Overall we’re keeping up with the schedule with only a few minor issues. I pulled the Wednesday run out of the schedule as it just didn’t add anything and the extra recovery day is useful.
Barring major catastrophe we’re going to go to Dead Horse and see it through to the end.
