I ran my longest run ever on Sunday...a little over 11 miles. I learned some things during this run. I did not have enough drink with me. I will either have to take a third water bottle or drink more before I leave. I also could have used some more gels or GU. I did not have a big breakfast so that may have contributed to my lack of energy.
I started in the dark so I did not listen to my music for the first four miles. I like running with my own thoughts for a while. Somewhere in the middle miles I lost track of the music. I have no idea what songs were playing nor do I remember what I was thinking. I think I was just lost in the run which is good I guess.
Now the only problem is that my knee and left quad hurt. I rested yesterday and have not run yet today either. I am wanting to run, but know I should wait another day since I have a 5K on Sat. On the other, if I run today and it hurts I have three days to rest. What to do????
