Tonight, I felt the whole week of running in my legs. I wasn’t really feeling it. But instead of not running at all, I decided to run anyways. I notice that a few minutes into my run, most of my aches and pains disappear. It’s like starting a machine.
I read about contrast showers and found the concept interesting. I’ll try that for my longer runs. I’ve run 6 days this week. Surprisingly, after the runs, I feel fine. I’m not really that tired. I do bandage my knees and ankles, but otherwise I’m fine.
Today I had some breakfast buns, with eggs, bacon, meat, and cheese. Once a week, I have them. Usually, it’s on the weekend and usually it’s when I don’t really feel like making any food. Other than that, some fruits, a lemonade smoothie, a papaya smoothie and some Super Supau.

A friend of mine suggested it. It’s nice and light, and pretty cheap for that type of drink. 1.5L bottles are about a buck.
I mistakenly had some food a few hours before my run. I should have just stuck with fruits. It didn’t feel well in my stomach. I usually wait until after the run to eat something, but since it’s the weekend and the first Saturday in a long time that I wasn’t working, things didn’t go as planned.
Anyway, lesson learned.
So my long run will be on Tuesday. I might take Monday off, just to rest. I’m hoping to end the week with about 42km in total for the week. I think that this goal is attainable. I haven’t been overdoing it. Today I most definitely wouldn’t have run more than 4 km. I was followed by another runner most of the run. It was motivating, yet annoying at the same time. He didn’t lap me. I knew I was tired when I started running and had a few breathing issues, which disappeared rapidly.
What do I love about running? It makes me regular. It makes me go to bed earlier, it tires me out, I sleep soundly, I get up early, even on weekends and I have lots of energy.
The key to running marathons is running a 15 mile run each week.
