3 Hour Trail Run – Game Day Pace/Nutrition
16.77 miles / 3:10 / 11:22/mi

Notes: The run today went great. This was the first time I actually felt like I could have turned around and done it all over again, I wasn’t tired at the end and the legs still had a lot left in them. I attribute it to a somewhat easy week at the gym and my legs being fairly fresh. Once again it was really hot, which is good for me to train in. I brought along some new food to try and it worked fine (donut holes). Hydration went well until about 1.5 miles from the end I ran out of water (whoops). But it wasn’t really that big of a deal. The pacing was conservative and I made sure to restrict myself, I think this ultimately will be the key during the race. Also the elevation gain average was only slightly less than what I should expect on the course. 16.77 miles / 3:10 / 11:22/mi
