Okay so today's run was pretty awful. I mean, I enjoyed the suffering, but I had no idea I would be without water for the run and the heat finally caught up with me. Normally I get some gatorade at the turn around point but today there was no support on the trail and I ended up over 5 lbs. lighter when I got home. Not good.
I learned a little bit on this run. I need to take a little something with me when heading out into the heat. I started running around 8:00am, but that still might have been too late in the day here in Atlanta.
Overall, my legs and lungs felt good. My head was a bit cloudy from the sodium and glucose stores at zero. More suppliments could be in my future. My knee jerk reaction is to go by a box of GU and call it a day. Sounds like a plan.
