I’ve been thinking lots about running and drinking – the hydration kind not really the beer kind.
Hydration on a long run like Comrades - which for most goes on for well over 7 hours is, as we all know, very important.
So my thoughts on that soon.
The effort of the these weeks is accumulating. Even recovery runs are hard and I have to recover from the recovery run.
But its okay. Fresh orange juice, muesli, home-made health bread help. So does sleep.
Compared to last year its all looking good: Weekly totals between 46 and 50 km are better than last year; running pace easily 30 sec per km faster and still sustainable. I’ll get a rest soon and a 42.2 km marathon before the end of the year.
Its good when running is sustainable and allows me to ramp up distance from time to time.
