8 Miles

Sorry, I haven't updated for a while but I have been keeping up with my running. My knee hasn't been bothering me lately (yay!). So I ran 8 miles last Sunday. Thank goodness I was in Michigan so the weather wasn't too bad and it was flat!!! I was pretty happy with my time too. I've been following a 2:1 interval and it's been working for me in the hot summer heat.

With my 8 miles I used my new Fuel Belt...
It's the Revenge R2O and it's love at first use. The bottles are so easy to take out and put back in (one handed). The belt did not budge once. It was love at first use, so much so, I had to get one for my RB too. I also got the medium sized pouch to hold some energy products...which leads me to my next topic: Energy Products.

I purchased a couple Gu gels, Honey Stinger chews and a Clif Shot Block. I haven't tried them yet. Every time I thought about it I felt kind of icky. So, next time. But over all I felt great after 8 miles.

Until next time, happy running!
