Tonight’s run was awesome. I didn’t have high expectations for it, given that I am probably still recovering from the race on Saturday. But the weather was perfect, I wasn’t sore and my knee didn’t hurt. I felt a little tired, but I got over that quickly.
I did both “fast” miles at exactly the same pace: 8:45! I started to feel a little nauseous a few times, and I noticed that it only seemed to hit me whenever our pace dropped below 8:30. I tried to practice mind over matter and focus on my breathing… and it seemed to work. More or less. Nausea has been my downfall at the past two races and I’m determined to get past that. Our splits:
- Mile 1: 10:16
- Mile 2: 8:45
- Mile 3: 8:45
- Mile 4: 9:48
- Total: 37:34 (9:24 average)
After the run we rewarded ourselves with dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant. I always order the same thing: spring rolls with tofu and yellow curry with tofu. It was delicious as always! I also really like the Chang beer they serve there, but I didn’t have any tonight.
Any tips for fighting nausea while running?
