Blow Up!

Well - I blew up today. 16 miler and I was only able to make about 13.5. Had to call my wife to come pick me up the last two and a half miles. I knew I was in trouble when at mile 9 my legs literally were shaking.

Last week I was able to do a 14 miler. This week I started off fine until, but slowly throughout the run I started degrading more and more. I think it was a combinatino of the heat and lack of food that eventulally did me in.

I have two more weeks of distance to make sure it's going to work. Next week, I'll eat before my run and carry more water (not a sport drink). I think I'll also slow my pace down to an 11:00 pace instead of the 10:00 that I was shooting for today.
Wish me luck!
