Today was nicer. Lower humidity and lower temps. Nice to run in 70 degree temps instead of 90's. If you were to look at my GPS data you'd see I ran 10 miles today at an incredible speed. But then again I forgot to stop the GPS when I got back to my car....
I actually went 5 miles. Still in intervals but I went longer (13:3 more or less). Still a major struggle. Enough of a struggle that I had to start thinking that the October half may end up being a DNF or just super slow. So far the best interval combination that I've tried is a 4:1. So that's what I'll do on my long runs as prep. My shorter runs I'll still try to run longer intervals just to build up my endurance. It's just frustrating since I was able to successfully do the longer intervals back in June.
Even though I didn't sweat as much today I still went and picked up a BOGO deal for PowerAde. I dislike it almost as much as Gatorade but it does help me recover a little faster. But after taking a sip this morning after my run I immediately thought of this scene.
This is my reaction to drinking any kind of "sport's drink":
