1. I have to start taking something to eat. I was doing good, feeling good I could have ran all day. Till about 4.5 miles. Then I was dizzy and light headed. I couldn't go in a straight line. I thought I was going to have to call someone to come get me. I pushed through, I don't recommend that by the way, and finished my 6 miles. Now had I had something to eat I think I would have finished strong and cut at least a few minutes off my time. This week I will get some things to try.
2. I'm more of a long distance girl. The first 1-2 miles kill me. I'm not sure why, any ideas? I'm trying to to push hard, I always do a walk to warm up before I run. Those first 2 miles are rough though. About 2.5-3 is when I hit my groove. Once I got to 4 and 5 I really felt like I could have went all day, besides the whole dizzy thing. It seems really odd to me, but I'm new at this so maybe its common.
So here are my times for today. My sorta goal was under 1:30, i was at 1:37. I think I would have crushed that if I had something to eat. I'm still happy with my time.
