We ran our usual long run places on Riverside, but of course added 2 more miles. We had our last GU's at 7 miles. I wasn't a fan of the GU the first time, but it was ok this time. We also took 2 little water bottles with the Clif electrolyte drink again as well as the Clif Shot Bloks at mile 14. Still loving the Shot Bloks. This time we had lemon-lime flavor. The Shot Blok package did not love me though! I carried them in the waist band of my shorts and the edge of the package rubbed on my skin and made it bleed. That's my own fault though.
My thought at the end of the run yesterday was...thank goodness we don't have to do this again for a whole week! (We did run relatively fast for not running this distance before...8:14 mile pace for 2 hours 28 minutes total.)
