Just a jog

Went for a gentle twenty minute jog, and I mean gentle. Tonight's run was about feeling ready for Sunday rather than gaining any training benefit. The hard work has already been done.

I've been drinking water like a fish and cooking pasta like an Italian. The final critical component for me is to get enough salt. I know the advice from the health police is to cut down on salt but I add it by the bucket load to my cooking in the last phase before a long run. If I don't I get cramp in my calf muscles. All that exercise and drinking water seems to flush salt out of my system so it's vital I get enough.
