Running naked and scared

  • Nicest weather possible
  • No music
  • No 5 lb. fuel belt
  • No watch (it was in my pocket)
  • Out for a “nice comfortable jog”
  • Result was not what I expected, but full of @kimi’s Joy.

Now I’m scared I’ll go out to fast for realz on marathon day. And if I do, what’s the worst that happens? I bonk at 15? I bonk at 20? I bonk somewhere after that like I should any way??

How slow do I try and slow it down?!! I need one more really long run to know what to do, but I can’t do that now! AAAAAAHHHH!!!
