After a day of playing rockstar with a dear friend yesterday, it’s time to trade in the Strat for my Brooks. It’s long Saturday and as we near the California International Marathon start date, the longer the Saturday. Today is 13 miles.
So with RunKeeper App monitoring my progress and my music on random, off I go. Happy to report my App and iPhone crashed before I did. The music started playing at triple-speed. I had to continue to keep turning off Voice Command. But because of all of these focus grabbers, I ultimately ran an extra mile for a total of 14 or I like to call it “My personal best distance.” And the cherry on top, at a 9:19 per mile pace. Speaking of cherries on top, I want a sundae, but I ain’t hating the fact that I loaded up on Herbalife24 Prepare, Prolong, and Niteworks this morning before I left.
Let’s be honest … that’s a long run and water just won’t cut it and I’m the biggest water drinker you’ll find. Probably 100 ounces per day, but all that water isn’t going to replace what anybody needs to sustain on a 10-mile run let alone a marathon.
Morning weight = 172.5. Post-run weight = 170.
That is a head-scratcher … just burned 1,851 calories, but after using our standard 500 calorie deficit equals a 1 pound loss, the head gets less itchy. But, and I again say … BUT, how is that possible? I’ve run much shorter distances and lost the same amount at post-run.
Life lesson #97 – Even though we can’t understand something, doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
Excuse the blurry picture … But, to my defense, it is 6:30 in the morning. It’s a no light-zone because I have 2 betas and there’s no need for them to wake up on my account.
- 14 miles. ‘Nuf said.
