I have a couple of questions for you:
- Occasionally I do my long runs at night vs first thing in the morning. It ends up just being a scheduling thing for me - I have a busy summer, and running first thing on a Saturday or Sunday doesn't always work out. I find when I run at night, I have a much harder time with recovery & stomach issues. Any tips on what to eat or avoid all day when doing long runs at night? (of course, I ask this today because I'm running 14 tonight... AND I just had 1/2 of a jalapeno cheese bagel for breakfast )
- my other question is what keeps you motivated? I ran my first marathon with TNT last year and had no problem motivating, but this time it's definitely not as easy. Any tips on what keeps you going?
