It was perfect. Pouring rain the day before Sunday had ensured that it was going to be great weekend long run. Though the running area had some wet patches, but on the whole, the weather was charming. We made the most of it, and it was really a very relaxed and comfortable run.
Since I am working towards my first marathon, I am making no effort at all on the speed front. The 21K was completed in 2:52. I am really optimistic though that I will be able to do the half marathon on Oct 16 within 2:30.
This is the first time I was running without any Gatorade for the long run as I forgot to buy it. I just mixed some Electrol in 2L water, and it did the job good enough. Maybe that’s what I will now start taking from now on.
