Started raining the second I left my apartment at 7am. The rain actually felt good considering that it was still 80 degrees out. Loved my new route out to Castle Island. Very scenic and had a great elevation mix too. Felt great until mile 9, slowed down a bit and had my first water. Should have had it much earlier as I was pretty dehydrated at this point. By mile 10 I opened the Gu which made me feel a bit nauseous and actually made me much more thirsty. Drank a lot of water over the next mile or two. By mile 12 I was pretty defeated but was able to power on knowing how close I was to completion. I finished and stretched feeling pretty good. Right inner ankle is sore. Left inner thigh is also sore. Hydrated with coconut water, foam rolled and rested for 2 hours. Overall it was a good workout.
