Chuggin' along.

So, breakfast was cornmeal cooked in vanilla soy milk topped with crushed walnuts.  Decent breakfast, right?  I set out for my four mile walk (kind of hilly), and two miles in I had a drop in blood sugar.  My Gu?  Home.  In my purse.  Rats.  About another quarter mile I spied the roach coach.  A Gatorade would have been nice about then.  My money?  Home.  In my purse.  Double rats.

I had to slow down so I'd make it home - upright.  I downed a half cup of OJ and I was a-okay.  I guess I'll have to eat a banana just before I leave the house.  I'll try that next time.

And my daughter is about to run a 50mile trail race!  Holy @#$%!!!

Sigh.  I'll just keep chuggin' along.  Lesson learned.

Miles remaining:  2974


  1. Ugh! But it happens to the best of us. You may find your normally sufficient breakfast isn't enough as you increase mileage/intensity, or it could be that you just need to pack that banana or pretzels or whatever.

    And....better to learn during training :)
