May 26: Second attempt. 2:04:09. Brought my own water but run was slightly worse. Wall came at 7 miles. By the time I got home, I was limping slightly and had taken off my shoes, thinking it would make my feet hurt less.
June 7: Third attempt. 2:08:43. So much better. I didn't watch my calories yesterday and ate pasta for dinner last night. I brought water, shot blocks and grapes. Only walked up one hill, a little bit half-way through as I was fishing the shot blocks out of my backpack, and once when Tyler called to ask where I had hidden the HSA card that I told him I would give him before I left but didn't. I had to take a bathroom break around 7 miles, but the park is right on my route. My feet didn't hurt, my legs were fine. I reminded myself to pick up my feet to increase my speed, but it seems it didn't work.
Why am I getting slower?
