I’m inching closer to six miles for my long runs. Sunday was 5.85, so my recently adjusted goal will be realized in the next couple of weeks. I didn’t think I would get to that distance until much later. I also tried Clif Shot Bloks during my run. They’re easier to get down than sports beans, but I feel like GU gels and Clif shots gave me more of a boost. Next week, I’ll try a different flavor of clif shots(vanilla, also caffeine-free), and hopefully I’ll cross the six-mile threshold. I’m about three weeks away from my third 5k, so getting to six miles will hopefully give me the confidence(and fitness) to lower my PR(26:46) even more. We’ll see.
Have a great week everyone!
