Downhill and Uphill – Elise
I did my 20-mile run this past Saturday. I went out to Hopkinton and ran the course for ten miles and then turned back. I think it was a good comparison of the Marathon since the first ten miles are downhill so I had to run uphill the second half of my run, similar to Heartbreak Hill. I downloaded two "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" episodes and two "This American Life" episodes that pretty much covered my run. I also tried out my new fuel belt, which was fairly comfortable and very helpful. I felt pretty good the next day, just some cramping in my foot. I think I am going to try carb loading before my next long run and see if it works.
