A windy 10 miles

December 17, 2008

Just a quick post reflecting on our 10 mile LSD this past Sunday.

It. Was. Windy.  My neighbor and I ran an out-and-back course and wisely chose to do the out into the wind.  It was ridiculous.  We were just laughing at how tough it was to run.  We ran something like a 11:45/mile pace on the way out.  I almost got blown off the sidewalk at one point.  The entire time we just kept in mind how much better the return run would be.

It was a fun run and one to remember.  On a “diabetic note” I had a HUGE spike afterwards.  Roughly 3 hours of 12% basal will do that to you.  I need to remember to try and replace a little bit of what was lost to compensate after these 10+ mile runs.  I’m pretty sure the same thing happened after the Alton 10 mile race.
