How is everyone holding up in the heat? This is the first week I’ve really felt it in my workouts. It hit me like a ton of bricks Tuesday evening when Dennis and I tried to do my 4 X 1 mile repeats. The first two I hit the splits well and the last two were redunkulous. I don’t know if he knew but a car drove up and yelled at me “Get that GUY!” I’m thinking “I am TRYING!!! I don’t let people beat me for fun!” I laughed though and people who say positive things like that make my day. It’s the weird things people say that freak me out. Anyone shout nice things to you?
Wednesday I hit the trails alone for a 10 miler. I spent the morning with the family and driving to the trails that afternoon my car read the following: (It may have well read “Dummy, you should have woken up early to run!”)
On days I am running for distance not pace I have no issue with temps. I know I will run a slower pace, plan to hit the water fountains, and enjoy it because it’s better than running in 3 years of cold, windy, rain (Sorry Seattle! 😉 )
Race photos came back from the 8K. Usually I do not even look at race photos. It sounds odd because I have a blog but I cannot stand looking at videos, pictures, etc. of myself. I get all bashful and awkward. This one is good though. I LOVE the guy photo bombing in the background. I wonder how many other pictures of other runners he is in, ha!
Today I had two runs planned. I did 9 miles in the morning, 5 of which were intervals at half marathon pace or faster, other 4 were warm up and cool down. Tonight I’ll do an easy 3-4 to finish the day. What do you have planned today??
Lastly, I can’t post videos on my blog but check out this link with videos of my training partners. Such a fun group. “On The Run!”
