Running long (Moderate road run) 1:45:00  17.0 mi (6:11 / mi) +185ft 6:07 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Saucony Endorhin Pro
Perfect spring weather today with no wind at all, had a decent breakfast if porridge and a banana this morning on wakening around 7ish, this is maybe one thing I've neglected and got wrong in the past by not eating before long runs at times.
Over the last month or so I've been having a decent breakfast 2.5 hours before and consuming a banana aswell, I've noticeably seen a difference. Although I eat very well, breakfast has always been hit and miss as I've found it hard to eat first thing in the morning but I've now eat as soon as I get up.
Today's run went very well for a long moderate....its the strongest I've felt yet on the moderate runs and it was the longest long run. It felt fairly easy today both aerobically and structurally, I felt as if I could have carried on no problem.
I digested a gel at 50 mins just to get the body used to them incase I take any on race day!
I felt the glute and hamstring a little throughout the run but it wasn't any worse than normal...
Another great week of training!
