We stopped at miles 4, 10, and 15 to get some water and gatorade. At mile 4 I decided to carry gatorade with me on the run. I could feel a difference in my energy levels this week, so I believe my next purchase will be one of these hand held water bottles. Eric sweats a lot, and today he lost about 3-4 lb, so is working on rehydrating with 64 ounces of fluids, (16-24 oz per pound lost). Guess he will be taking that to church with him.
I had gels on miles 7 and 12. Eric took 3 gels–he doesn’t eat these very often, so he was wary about it upsetting his stomach and took them miles 10, 14, and 16. He made the comment that he should have started taking nutrition a little earlier on, but it’s trial and error and a learning process. 😉
Refueled with a delicious egg omelet stuffed with onions, spinach, basil and munster cheese per E’s request and some fresh cold melon! YUM. We also tag-teamed some cold leftover fried rice while the omelet was cooking. Now on to shower, iced latte, church, and home for his Dad’s birthday. Enjoy this beautiful day.
