Today's Workout: 2.87 miles...then I gave up.
IT. IS. HOT.
I was going to run really early this morning, but when my alarm went off, I turned it off and stayed in bed! My full body is sore from class yesterday. I increased some of my weight, put forth more effort, and I can really feel it today in my back, glutes and legs.
So I headed out the door at 9:30am. I had a couple of hours with no meetings, so I decided to take advantage of it. I took the dogs with me and they managed to crank out a 12:09 min mile. Yay puppies! Of course since we have gotten home, they've done nothing but lay on the tile trying to recover. I'm going to whip them into shape yet.
I brought them home and went back out. I had to make up some of the slow time from taking them....but I still ended with a 11:30 min/mile overall. I walked too (gasp). It's just too stinking hot!
Oh....and I had a revelation....you know I've been complaining that I'm running slower outside than I normally run....and it's really irritating me. I looked back at my log on my phone and realized I ran fastest in March/April....before it got so hot. Obviously the heat HAS to play a role there. Especially for someone who HATES the heat. So I'm going to give myself a break until the fall....then we're going to work on speed again!
But...it's June...almost July...and I ran outside!
That alone (for me) is a miracle!
