POST # 10 HITTING THE WALL
ENDURING YOUR FIRST MARATHON with Elite Health Services Physical Therapist, Dr. Tiffany Sudol
In my training this week I learned the value of fuel as well as what it means to “hit the wall”.
Up until this point I had been running about 12 miles in distance with no water or food. When I went out for my recent 15 mile run I added Gatorade and felt so much better; however, after the 15 miles I ran about .63 further and at one point looked up and had no idea where I was. I was told that that was “hitting the wall”.
Has this happened to you? What have you found works best for you when it comes to refueling? Shoot me an email. I would love to hear from you!
