WHYYYYYYYYYYYY didn’t I get out of the bed when the alarm FIRST went off?
This morning, I hit snooze three times. What was I thinking? When I finally got out of the bed, the sun was fully up and it was 80 degrees. I was still (kinda) determined to get this run in and over with – even in the heat.
I forgot ALL of my running clothes in the washing machine last night. So, yep… They are wet. I threw a bra in the dryer and put on some less than favorite running shorts and a top. I am getting this freaking run in if it kills me.
When I walked outside, it didn’t feel as hot as I thought it might, but there was no breeze and the sun was shining nice and bright. Not a cloud in the sky.
By the time I got to 4-1/2 miles, the heat was really bothering me. I couldn’t get a rhythm going and every step was a task. I took a few more walk breaks and finally ran the last 3/4 miles until I hit 6 miles.
Today, I didn’t have any knee pain to speak of. Yay! I didn’t really even think about it until I was halfway done. It was just hot.
So, tomorrow is REST DAY! I need it.
But first, I’m getting into my hot tub with Epsom salt. I’ve eaten a banana, taken my vitamin and had a big glass of cold water. My work is done.
Until next time, y’all!
