Icy Run – Elise
So my 17-mile run was not so bad. I felt physically good after the run and didn't have too many points at which I wanted to quit. I ran the loop on the Charles River from the Science Museum bridge to the Watertown bridge. It was a nice loop but I will say it was incredibly icy. At times I just had to get onto the closest street and run because the path was a sheet of ice. It slowed my time down so I feel like I didn't get an accurate read on my pace. I am hoping in three weeks when I have my 20-mile run it will be better conditions. I also practiced my water and snack amounts on this run. It seems about every 45 minutes a sip or two of water and a Gu energy gel seem to be just the trick.
