Marathon Training Day 70

Worst run over ever had. I knew it was supposed to be hot, so I tried to get out before sunrise. I got out a little before 6 and decided to do Galloway method on the run. Everything started off well enough as I piled on the miles. I hit my turnaround point and headed back, and that’s when the issues started. The sun came up and it was up with a vengeance. I felt my pace faltering as the heat did not let up. As I approached the last half mile, I couldn’t take it anymore…I had to stop and sit. It was so hot and I think I was beginning dehydrated. The water in my hydration pak was warm at this point and of no use. I think it was a combination of dehydration and running on E that brought me down. I couldn’t walk more than 20 steps without having to stop again, one point letting down on the trail. Finally made it back to my car where I had more water and some Nunn. Checked my phone and learned it was 88 degrees, but with heat  index felt like 100 degrees. Never been so glad to finish a run. 18 miles left on pavement.
