That was the quote that I was thinking of when I was running my 20 this morning... almost 20, I think I did around 19 or 19.5 and wiped out (it was slippery and I slipped on a rock) at the end and called it a day! Last long training run, but I didn't nail it. I think I'll just be out for a finish on Nov 22! It stinks that I'm not into this training - it is disheartening.
The fun part about the run is that I met Denise for the first time in person - yay! It was nice to run with her and meet her!
Fueling- I think I was dehydrated, water looked so refreshing. I only took one GU after 2 hours. My face was all salty at the end - is that good or bad? My fueling strategy needs work. My stomach is definitely sensitive lately.
As I was running I was thinking of the needed break that I will take after the marathon, and then maybe pick a tri to do in 2010. I don't know which distance I should start with for the tri. I think I will have fun with that!
