First 20 miler! (20.3 in 2:56:28, 8:42 ave)
9xByd loop, 9am, 49-52-54-56 degrees. GTC singlet, Nike soccer shorts, Pak w/ Larabar tht I didn't eat and 11 jellybeans that I did eat, n1224 w/ arches, oxysox, shufflt (2 hrs podcasts, 1 hr music), 1/2 L h20 stuck in the mailbox - lasted the whole run - took some every 4.5 miles w/o issues. Varied the paths, so it's expected if the splits are different, but obviously, I slowed down.
Splits> 19:08, 18:35, 18:59, 19:30, 19:36, 19:46, 20:10, 20:13, 20:27. Last mile, my legs were tired, though they started getting a little tired from the third loop. Poor pacing. 8:13 for my fastest and 9:03 for my slowest.
Injury-wise, brilliant. Only issue was my tummy feeling like it had a rock or knot in it from mi 3 onwards, but not a biggie. Maybe made me desire food/drink less than I would otherwise.
Dad rode his bike w/ me the whole way, which is nice. 3 hrs on a bike!
