Happy Good Friday Running Buddies!

I'm off work today, but the Hubbo has to work so I'm just sitting at home relaxing and preparing for my 20 miler tomorrow. 
It's just me, the dog, and the cat. I'm hydrating like a boss and they, well, they are being lazy. 

The Hubbo sent me the pic below of our dog, Zoey, and our cat, Gypsy, a few weeks ago.
This picture is totally staged! They aren't friends, but it's cute when they tolerate each other for a few seconds. 
Don't get me wrong, it's not a hostile relationship, they just prefer to pretend the other doesn't exist. And when Zoey walks too close to Gypsy, she likes to bop her in the face a time or two. Don't worry though, we always separate them and Gypsy doesn't use her claws. Zoey usually just stands there looking confused for a second.

You can cut the tension with a knife...

Today I'm getting mentally and physically ready for my 20 mile run tomorrow with my group.
Here's my plan for the day...

Step 1: Eat cereal for breakfast.
Done!

Step 2: Wear Strassburg Sock off and on today.
Currently In Progress.

Step 3: Hydrate like a boss!
In Progress! Already 17 ounces in.

Step 4: Stretch and Foam Roll.
Eh, we'll see if I get to this one...
Step 5: Play Laser Tag with friends.
Totally doing this today! What should my player name be?

Step 6: Eat a turkey sandwich and apple for lunch.
Nom nom nom!

Step 7: Eat something for dinner and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
TBD

And this will be me tomorrow after my run...

Leave a comment! How do you prepare for your long run?

I'm off today too and thoroughly enjoying it. I got 9, yes nine hours of sleep last night, much better than the. 4.5 the night before, then ran a 12 mile tempo, 8 of it was tempo, at 4:00 am. So insane to be so in love with training. I am not a good hydrator, I hate water unless I'm running. I trust my Endurolytes to fill in the gaps. I got introduced to pedialyte flavor pops when I had the flu, they are a good source if electrolytes without the sugar so I may suck on a couple of those. I am downloading some new music today and I'm going to the library to get one of those electronic books to go...after I pay my fines on my over due books! I plan on eating spaghetti & meatballs for lunch, I eat a light dinner before a long run. The weather looks good for tomorrow!

I'm definitely excited about the weather tomorrow! So glad you got some good rest too, you need it after being sick and all those miles!
I need to try an electronic book to go. I've heard of runners doing that, but never gave it a try. Maybe I will!

Thanks! And It's a deal! I crave sugar and protein after my run so something sweet will definitely be on the menu!

I get super bored starting about mile 13 so Kathryn and I came up with the idea of a book. I've already been to the library, they're called "play books" and I've had a huge plate

Hope you were able to get your play book fixed! That's such a good idea. I'll keep it in mind for my next solo run!

I don't do anything special before a long run but I've never run a 20 miler. 13.1 is my distance record. I do make sure and eat light the night before not too much carbs and low fat. Just before crawling into bed I eat a chocolate candy bar or York peppermint patty it gives my body some last minute glycogen stores.

I like the idea of a little chocolate before bed, sounds awesome!

I just wake up early drink some water and take water with me.. I am not a person that likes to plan to much. I figure water and some GU for the run and I am good

Oh man! I don't know how you do it. The Hubbo is that way too. He just takes 1 Gu before the run, no breakfast and not much water and then just takes Gu during the run too. You guys are crazy!

Due to high demand of essay writing, sometimes the essay writers are not able to keep the deadlines that they give to the students, this one causes conflicts between the students and the writers. Sometimes the students end up carrying unfinished work and take to other writers to do it for them. This one causes waste of time and money to the student.
