I was up and going at 4:45 a.m. and headed to Luke's for my 5 mile run. It was hot but not near as bad as the weekend before. I felt really good on the run. I managed 11:54 pace.
After the run we did some stretching and then I headed into Luke's for a clinic on Hydration. They talked about the importance of drinking enough water before, after and during a run and to test out the different type of sports drinks to see which work best with your digestive system. A good tip I picked up was to weigh yourself before a run and immediately after. If you lose more than 1/2 a pound then you not hydrating enough before running and if you gain weight then you are over hydrating. Both scenarios can result into problems.
Saturday night we went to a concert with friends. It was Jack FM's Throwback Concert (4-80's Cover bands). My favorite was Back in Black (AC/DC) then Fan Halen (Van Halen), Queen Nation (Queen) and my least favorite Guns 4 Roses (Guns N' Roses). The first three bands sounded just like the originals but the last...not so much!
Back in Black
The concert was a lot of fun until we left. It was at the Gexa Energy Pavilion (Starplex) by Fair Park and when we got to Keith's truck the stereo had been stolen out of the dash. It was a aftermarket stereo that was touch screen and had a GPS. That really caused the evening to end abruptly on a bad note.
It was a long day...got up at 4:45 a.m. and went to bed at 1:30 a.m. I was exhausted...it's rough getting old.
