Because I love to number things, here we go!
1. Yesterday was a much needed rest day! Again, it felt sooo good to go home and do nothing. Well, nothing is relative - I managed laundry and cooking dinner, but you get the point, NO RUNNING! I like taking this mid-week rest day as it gives me the rest I need to tackle my med-long run on Thursday and then go into the weekend feeling a bit more rested than if I kept going. I changed my schedule a few weeks back and I'm loving it!
2. If you haven't been keeping track - it's been HOTTTTTTT here in the Bay Area! Like triple digits hot! Monday I had every intention of getting my run done on the treadmill at home, but when I hit start I just couldn't imagine slogging out 6 miles on that thing! So off I hopped and went for a run outside. Yeah, probably not my smartest move as it was 92+ when I started at 5:30. But the heat was more bearable (believe it or not) than running on that stupid machine. 6 miles done and I was a sweaty beast! I actually was able to maintain a 8:23 average the whole time and only stopped once to stretch! Tuesday I went to the gym for my track workout. It was 108 when I went in!!! I really had no idea how it was going to go, but did I get part of the workout in with 6x800's (had 8 to do with one 1600 in the middle) with a great cool down. 8 miles in 1:00:03! Nice! I nailed it and it felt so good. The second I stepped out of the Y though, it was still HOT! Thankfully we have a cool down coming today - I don't think I can do much more of this!
3. Today the hubbs and I are going to head into SF for a run. I have my med-long run to do and with his new found appreciation of running (he's lost 5 pounds in the last couple of weeks with running!) he has no prob driving all over the Bay with me to change it up. I would love to get 14 in, but we'll see how long he lasts ;) Afterwards we are going to treat ourselves to a fun dinner in the city - a perfect Thursday in my opinion.
I may be MIA after today in the blog world for a few days. Looks like I will be heading down to LA in the next couple of days. I have an auntie about to pass away. It kind-of puts a damper on when I will be leaving work now - but family first. I was planning on Tuesday being my last day but I don't think I will be there. I will probably have to push it out a couple of days - oh well.
Have a great Thursday! Happy Running peeps!
