Enjoyed a lie in this morning 😍 so apparently the humidity (85%) was lower for my run than earlier in the day. You can tell we’ve had a lot of water recently, instead of brown... all the foliage is spring-like luscious green. It’s so beautiful! I love being outside so much!
So I found a new fuel right at the end of my last training cycle through necessity rather than choice (the one I used for years was discontinued for some reason) and so I took a chance on a new name I started to see more and more in the media. Apparently it’s big in the triathlon world and has been for some time. I’m really fussy over the texture (of many things actually 🤷♀️) and find it hard to swallow thicker gels and I don’t like the sugar sweet taste either so this one is a refreshing change and not too sickly sweet either. I’m delighted with it so it’s my fuel of choice from now on. Im usually pretty religious with my fuelling routine though but for some reason today I didn’t take as many gels out with me as I usually would for this distance (18 miles) and really could have done with taking another to battle through the soup like sauna conditions I think. I made it home in one piece and it wasn’t a bad run at all but learned a lesson for next time. That is what training is for anyway isn’t it... practice and making mistakes/ experimenting and learning. It’s all part of the journey, and I love it!
Week One @philly_marathon training done!
