Issues to Note:
1. Feeling mentally and physically tired after this demanding week of miles and weather.
Next Week Goal:

Training Run: Loops & Willow Guzzle

The weather was much more accommodating this morning from last weeks sweat fest. In running the loops I discovered it was mentally challenging to continue. After 12 miles I was ready to quit, removed the mp3 player and walked fifty yards.. I took in about 12 ounces of Gatorade Endurance drink and put the rest in my bottle. Next thing you know it off I went thinking I would only do a one mile loop and my wife would appear so I could drag myself in. Well, the Gatorade did the trick; the first mile out was fast, comparatively speaking, and I continued onto the Willow Guzzle completing it without the mental anguish.
