am - TM Long Run at Columbus gym.  Clocked in at 8am.  Battling seom bad Chili's fajitas to start off.  Test of Tailwind electrolyte drink mix.  Taste isn't the best, but, definitely can sub this mix with water (lighter = 1 scoop / 16oz.) for gels for 4 hours. 

Reset 3 times, drank a couple of handhelds full of the Tailwind mix.  Threw in 10x3:00 AT in last 4.5 miles.  27 miles total - 3:51:05.  hopefully this is the first of several 100 mile+ weeks

AM Long Run.  Beautiful day outside and took the day off work.  7 am start fromm the house.  Went out toward Grandview and continued on Bellaville Pike.  17 miles out and back.  17 miles (almost) exactly from house to the Horseman's entrance at BCSP.  Left foot is feeling pretty inflammed, and really started breaking down after 28 miles.  Mostly survived off Tailwind drink mix in a hydration pack.  4 scoops just about right mix for that amount of water.  Fortunately, had a handheld also.  34 miles  5:11.
