Not the run I was looking for today

Day 648 - October 10, 2010

The higher temperatures today caught me off guard and I failed to keep myself hydrated. I felt great for the first 14 miles, but then the wheels came off. I had to stop and stretch out my hamstrings several times, and by mile 19 I was walking, still 4 miles from home. Luckily my running partner sent a car back for me when he finished. Not the run I was looking for 3 weeks out from the marathon.

The video below is my left calf still spontaneously cramping 2 hours after the run. I can't believe I got that dehydrated despite all the fluids I carried with me.
