17 slow on the trails.  I was out there almost 3 hours.  It was good to have time on my feet, but I can't believe it took that long.

I woak up at 3:30 but didn't feel like getting out of bed, so I went back to sleep and got up a little after 6. I therefore only had time for a 13 mile trail run at a nice comfortable pace this morning.  Guess I'll be doing my really long run tomorrow. Probably the extra day of rest was the right call though.  My legs feel a lot better today than they did yesterday.

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.
