Raise your hand if this heat and humidity is kicking your booty too! Goodness gracious! We have been in the mid to upper 90’s for a week now and enough is enough already. It’s miserable! Each run I feel soggish and tired. I’m having trouble even truing to rehydrate because all I do is sweat. It’s been a tough week. Hopefully all this running in it will help when I start marathon training in a few weeks. Acclimation is over rated. Ha!
Monday – I had planned to go to BodyPump but school was crazy busy and I ended up leaving late so I had to miss it. I did get my mile in for my run streak.
Tuesday – A group of us met to run with our friend, Kay’s running group. We had a decent 4 mile run, mostly in the shade. Thankfully! Kay provided everyone with some freezy pops!! Perfect post run treat!
Wednesday – I met Christie to run early. My goal was to get in 4, maybe 5 miles. Ended up feeling decent and ran 6.
Thursday – A group of us met to run 3 miles before we went to our local baseball team, Greensboro Grasshoppers. It was so wickedly hot that we all sweated profusely all night. Tough run!
Friday – one mile
Saturday – We planned to run 8-8.5 miles but we ended up doing 9. The map I used from my Garmin for this route said 8.68. Not sure why it was 9 miles this time. Either way, it was a decent run given the temperature and dew point. (72 degrees and 69 degree dew point).
Sunday – Christine and I met to run some recovery miles. We got 4 miles in which was great!!
Weekly Miles: 28.33
2015 Year To Date Miles: 669.13 towards 1500
Our cooking was all over the place this week. I’m blaming the heat. None lf us were really hungry for dinner and we ended up piecing meals together.
- Hummus and Triscuits
- Grilled cheese sandwich on rye
- Grilled chicken sandwich at the baseball game
- Hot wings post game
How did your week go? Is the heat bearable where you are? If so, I’m jealous!
Go be awesome! 🙂
