So after Saturday I'm super pumped for my Half Marathon training! I went to the gym and lifted Monday night, but chose to do no cardio. I've been talking about a Garmin watch since Saturday, and researching to figure out which one I want. The hubs made a pretend "deal" with me and told me if I could run 5 miles straight he would go buy me the watch....well good thing it was a joke because I was a little less disappointed that I didn't do it! We ran 2 miles around a new park, drove home to drop the dog off (after a little dog park time of course) then set out for 3 more. I only ran 2 more but decided I would take a break, rehydrate, and run 1 more. The Hubs talked me out of the last mile so I didn't over do it. (Thanks for that one!)
So do my miles count towards longer runs if I split them up? Obviously 4 miles isn't that long of a run but as my distances increase is it better to do it all at once or just get the miles in?
Then I proceeded to eat like a fat kid.....On The Border, BEER....and a late night plate of cheese fries The Hubs ate most of them)...Yup this is why I run!
I had to work Wednesday night, so most of my day consisted of a lovely nap (after running errands of course.) So I got in a quick 2 miles before heading to work. Working night shift totally makes it more difficult to squeeze in runs. I get home/in bed around 8am and sleep until 3-4pm. I leave my house at 6 to go back to work, so I only have 2-3 hours to eat, run, and shower......
I tried out the GU Chomps on Tuesday, strawberry I think. Not to bad but not really easy to eat while running. What are your favorite GUs/Gels?
Which Garmin watch do you recommend?
