Running Log – Week 8 – Chocolate Robopops for Energy!

App Used: ismoothrun


This was my first run with my marathon training group at the Running Room on Cambie Street. I was the slowest member of the group. Had a little cry, then realized this is truly a first world problem and got over it. I mean, I’m in a marathon training group, that in itself is pretty cool – who cares if I’m the slowest?! I just ran 9.5km non-stop, I couldn’t do that a month ago – life is good!

The first hour of the run felt great! After about an hour I started to fatigue, ate some honey stingers chews, started to feel very run down at 1:20.

Post-Run Energy

After my long run on Saturday, I ate a delicious chocolate robopop, from Chocolate Arts. Complete with pop-rocks in the chocolate. Sounds bizarre, but it’s really cool and tasty! Thanks to Adri for providing this tasty treat!
