I started off my morning fueling up with some strawberries, oatmeal with peanut butter and an iced coffee with chocolate milk. Monica from Run Eat Repeat has iced coffee before a lot of her runs so I figured I would try it out today!
Here I am at the beginning of my 13k journey.
This was the second hill (but most intense) that I tackled.
The view from the top of the hill is amazing. I live in a very beautiful (most times) place.
At about 7.5k there was a booster juice so I decided to have my mid-run fuel in the form of a Green Hornet juice.
My run was pretty hilly. Definitely a challenge for me. When I hit the 10k mark I started freaking out about the last hill and trying to think up alternate routes home. Then I just started repeating (freakishly) "that hill's not so bad, that hill's not so bad, that hill's not so bad". I got to the intersection where I had to make the decision... and what comes on my iPhone but Ice Cube baby. "You can do it". I was in, I took on that hill and finished my last 3k like it "ain't no thang".
Until I stopped and started walking and my legs were not moving normally. I think I have to start looking into compression shorts, ice bathes and so on. Not super looking forward to it either.
Overall my run was extremely successful and when I got home I refuelled with greek yogurt, carrot cake granola and a banana!
