DAY 63 OF THE #RUN70 MILEAGE SERIES

Screen Shot 2017-07-17 at 7.08.40 PM.pngI was up again at 4:30am this morning and out the door by 5:30am – it was the second day of the WDS main stage summit and needed to get there early. I switched up my route a bit and ran about 5.5km south and stumbled upon a beautiful path by the water then ran back North and did another 5.5k along the Willamette before turning around and heading back south to the hotel. I was making great time until I got stuck behind a railway crossing and a train that seemed like it was never-ending. It put me behind schedule 15 minutes and while I was waiting I decided to get a bit more mileage in – came in with my longest run of the challenge so far at 22.36km. My legs continued to feel stiff from all the walking (and lack of stretching). I wasn’t able to bring my foam roller or any ice packs with me on the trip and have noticed a difference in my soreness since I veered away from my regular routine.

I continued listening to Shoe Dog, by Phil Knight (Creator of Nike) – recommended to me by my amazing business partner and best friend, Kayla.

My pre-workout meal was a Quest protein bar and half a banana, which gave me pretty good energy throughout. I got really hungry around the 18k point and when I got back to the hotel, shoved my face with eggs, toast, greek yogurt and granola, fruit, oatmeal, and water mixed with plain flavour whey isolate

Only 7 more days of the #RUN70 Half Marathon Challenge.

Paced slow again at 6’05km/9’47mi after 2 hours 15 minutes and 54 seconds.
