|Lake Grapevine at Northshore Trails|
At 8:45-ish after the sun set I started hydrating and eating like crazy. Before the run with my usual trail buddies this morning I took in some more hydration, was out of GU, all I had was one of those 5 hour energy shots, so it had to do. I set out to do about 6 miles not knowing how I would be feeling. After 3 miles I felt mighty strong, so I figured I could do the whole 9 miles (as I thought it would be). The course ended up being a little over 10 miles, I felt like I could have went a couple more at the end. Not sure if it was the slightly cooler weather that helped or that 5 hour energy shot. Afterwards had breakfast with the group at Fuzzy's Tacos, absorbed a little bit more knowledge regarding training and race strategy from my coaches conversation. Pretty good start for Sunday leading to a weeks vacation from work. Now time for some stretching, foam rolling and NFL Football.
