3/25: Run

Goal: 10k

Ran: 8 miles

Time: 01:27:00 | 10:39

Injuries: super tight hips 

Since there was no 10k I decided that trying another long run and figuring out fueling was more important over speed and timing. 

Bloodsugar before: 146

Ate : Pretzels + lavash w. 1/2 pkt J’s Almond Butter w. honey 

Mile 6: 90 

Ate: 4 Gu Chomps 

After: 113

Runkeeper was screwy, it didn’t pause properly when I stopped to do a blood test at mile 6 – you can see it in mile 7 (75 minutes for a mile?!).

3/11: Run

Goal: 7 

Ran: 7.11

Time:  1:12:45 | 10:14

This was my longest run since the summer (as will be all future long runs).

Bloodsugar before: 133 

Ate : vitamuffin + lavaish w. 1/2 pkt of Justin’s PB & honey 

Mile 5: 135

Ate: 2 glucose tablets since 2 miles left (apparently not necessary) 

Bloodsugar after: 156 

noted that this was an evening running. 

This is the most consistant my bloodsugars have ever been during a run – especially for a longer one. 

Felt like a strong solid run – not much different than a 3 miler. No notable pain / tweaks – wore compression sleeves.
