Today's run was set to be 8 miles but I had to cut it short at 6.5 because I got rip roaring loaded...in my bladder. I tried out my very neat new Amphipod handheld water bottle and decided that gripping a container of sloshing liquid/drinking that liquid in an attempt to make the bottle lighter and/or stop the sloshing is a bad idea. Given, it was 95% humidity at 7 a.m. today, but I didn't need to guzzle my water like this:
It would have been much better to sip it in a more refined manner, like this:
I plan to hydrate in this fashion when I attend the Royal Wedding next weekend. Note the refined pinky daintily extended. I also plan to call my dirty sweaty bandana my church hat. Oh how impressed the Queen will be...
My pace today was the fastest I've done this distance but I think I went out too fast, or the water bottle was a pain in the arse, or the humidity got to me. It was not a comfortable run, it was mostly sticky and clunky. Back to the water belt for the longer ones.
