So post marathon, I have been resting, working like a fiend, playing golf and running a bit. Now I want to run a lot. Well not a cuckoo a lot, but more. I have my races picked up and an even racing a 10km in July. I haven’t raced 10km ….since I actually started running so this could be interesting….
Sunday’s run was just.so.awesome. I had to work over the weekend (Friday – midnight – 2am and Sat 11pm-2am) so my sleep was completely screwy. It would have been easy to loll around in my jammies but instead I went out for a ~9.5km run….and felt so much better – no way would I have felt like that if I had taken the easy road.
Because Ontario is just so much fun with its weather, we went from snow/hail to tons of rain and cold temps to having a Heat Alert issued. (meaning with the humidity, temps will run over 35C…HOTZO) That meant back to the early morning running today where it was me, the road, the neighbourhood bunny rabbits and the local paper delivery guy. 8.5km before the sun came up and still a sweaty mess? Yes please….
(don’t mind my Mr T necklaces…I added a new Lift Your Sole necklace to my run wardrobe essentials….I pity the fool who makes fun of me…)
How do you beat the heat? Does it bug you?
I don’t really handle heat that great (hellllllooooo Pittsburgh Marathon) so I have to be careful when I am in the danger temp zone.
