This one was a complete mess. I made the epically stupid decision to run at mid-day on one of the hottest days of the year so far here in NH. By mile 14 I was reduced to a walk-jog mess, but was determined to get in the full 20. In retrospect I probably shouldn't have pushed it because I think I ran myself into heat exhaustion. Started cramping in places I've never cramped before after I stopped (neck, abs...) so think it was salt/hydration related and not just neuromuscular fatigue. Cooled off in the kiddie pool with some cold water, cramping the entire time, and it was intensely painful. Had some salty bullion on the couch and fell asleep for about an hour, felt better when I woke up. Need to work on strategies for running long in heat, don't ever want to feel like this again. On a positive note, the Saucony Kinvara 4 worked well, my feet are about the only part of me that doesn't hurt :)
