Today I got in my first really long run in preparation for my 100K next month. I left my house at 5 am with the plan of running for 5 hours. The first 20 miles I did on the roads then I switched over to trails for the last couple hours. My garmin watch broke this week so I was just running by feel and then looked at my Strava data when I was done. I ended up running 33.2 miles in just under 5 hours with an AP of 8:44 and a little over 2500 feet of elevation gain. The best part was I felt good the whole time and finished strong. I really worked on staying hydrated. I drank a 20 oz. bottle of electrolyte drink mix every 5 miles. I even had to pee twice on the run and again when I finished. That made me happy. I did still lose 6 lbs. though so I could have done better. 

This is the longest solo training run I've ever done. It seemed to go quickly though.

Wait what? Holy smokes man.

My only 34 mile run I had soup, that was gold.
