I was supposed to go for my long run today….well that did not happen. First of all I had terrible run yesterday…I was so tired and could barely run under 12 minute miles and after my run the rest of my day was pretty crazy. Until the race I think I need to take a rest day the day before my long runs.
I have been really trying to work on my nutrition so that I am feeling energized throughout my runs. I am a HUGE coffee drinker…I basically cannot function in the morning until I drink my first cup. I am wondering if I am dehydrating myself and if I should cut it down a little. I usually have two to three cups a day. Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on that? Many people I talk to that run can do 10 miles or more without having to drink any water and right now I definitely am scared to try it.
