Week 10 Long run

Posted by F Heyward on Sep 20, 2010 2:57:30 PM

(18 Aug, Sat - 19 Miler)  Overall run went well.  I was feeling good up to about the 15 mile point then the humidity and the lonely environmet started to win out the day. 


I planned to run this one inside on the gym track since I'm still not fully acclimated to San Antonio wx.  However, I didn't realize that the gym doesn't open up until 8 am on the weekends.  IMHO that's too late to start a long run (wife & kids). My course is an out and back that I repeat.  So after the first loop (10 mi) I had to stop at my car so that I could change my socks. I generally sweat a lot when I run but this is ridiculous.  I could literally wring my socks out twice.  Well you have to do what you have to do IOT avoid any injuries (i.e. blisters).  My strategically placed water bottles and fountain stops are serving me  well on the hydration front.  Well I look forward to a day off tomorrow.

This started as a chronicle of my preparation for San Antonio RNR. I moved from San Diego, CA - San Antonio, TX and feared my training would be impacted by the humidity, heat and leaving familiar running groups. Blogging would keep me honest and focused.
