I hope you're having a super Saturday. We've had glorious weather the past two days and tomorrow is looking good as well. ;) Who would like to volunteer to be my wake-up call tomorrow? Gotta beat the heat for that long run!
This morning's run got to a little later of a start than I had hoped. It was 24 degrees with "feels like 30" humidity factor. :S I knew I'd be taking it slow and easy. And, I knew I'd need to take along my fuel belt.
|Trying out an old navy tank for the first time. |
I love how girlie it looks with the little frill
and drawstring on the side. :)
|Hydration Prep Pre-Run: Water poured for after. I prefer my water to be room temperature so I leave it out. Two bottles to take on the run and some Gatorade I've been sipping this morning. I like to save some for the after run as well. :D|
|Leaving for my run and THESE are the current weather stats!|
The run started out lovely. My muscles felt like they were already warmed up between walking Lola and the heat. I ran in the trail hoping to seek some shade from the trees. Also, I knew that running along the lake would have the normal breeze, which I usually dread on cool days...lol.
I felt pretty good all around. It was obviously hot, therefore I chose not to push the pace today. I saw a zillion bikers, and maybe three other runners....all male. One older man on a bicycle gave me a thumbs up as we passed by each other. He obviously thought I'd made a great 'on sale' purchase with my neon peach old navy tank! ;)
I drank both my bottles of water....one at 3.5 miles (the coke plant) and the other when I was crossing a crosswalk a mile from my house. I was dreaming of the watermelon, Gatorade and smoothie I would have when I arrived home! I enjoyed my smoothie on the deck trying to tan my super white feet....lol. I am totally rockin' the 'Runner's Tan' right now! ;)
|All done! How fabulous do I look?! Lol.|
|I sent Courteney this pic from |
the change room...lol.
This afternoon I hit up Old Navy in search of a sports bra. After seeing way too many things I wanted, I tried on a bunch of stuff!
This evening we fired up the BBQ for the first time in forever! I was secretly worried we wouldn't have enough propane...lol. We did! Courteney came over to help eat some of the food. :D
Tomorrow's run is a long one....16 miles at least. I can do it! You just have to remember to wake me up! ;)
Well, my sunburned shoulders and I are going to go watch some TV before bed. Have a great run tomorrow and don't forget to fuel up with liquids!
Hope to see you on the roads,
P.S. Sole Sisters is in 7 days!
