I have been wanting a little Camelbak for a little while now for my long runs. Sometimes it's hard to plan out water stops, so I figured this little guy would be perfect.
So.. I realize that it was my longest long run that I've done in a while.. and it was also the first one I did by myself in a while.. but it was not fun. I ran almost a 10 min/mile pace versus a 9:20 pace that I did for my last long run. I thought I would barely notice the backpack but all I wanted to do was throw it away into the bushes the whole time.
I can tell you one thing.. I will definitely not be wearing it for any races.
The good news is that I got it done and now it's taper time for my race on the 27th.
Here are the numbers from last week:
Monday: 4 miles at 9:18 pace
Wednesday: 5 miles at 9:18 pace
Friday: 10.63 miles at 9:58 pace (ick.. yeah I know it got cut a little short. Oh well!)
Have any of you run with a Camelbak before? Am I just being a wimp?
