So, I'm following the Jeff Galloway running plan for Wine and Dine (I'm running the relay with my brother-in-law). So today's run was 4 miles...and I felt awful. My pace was only two seconds slower than my 5k last week, which isn't bad considering I basically added an extra mile. But between the heat and the lack of hydration, it was bad. My computer said it was only 67 out when I don't think the temperature had updated. It was over 80 when I returned home.
So lesson learned, drink lots of water and run earlier in the day.
By the way, I'm leaning toward running the Myrtle Beach Mini. Any thoughts on the course? Any likes or dislikes?
