where all you *really* wanted to do is go for a run?
I haven't had one of those in a while, but today is one of those days. It's 9:00 pm, and here's my first chance all day. So, see you tomorrow! I have a couple-three miles to pound out, just to get it out of my system.
Tomorrow, I'm hitting the pool early for about 500 yds, just to work on the stroke and breathing, and probably spend about 20 minutes treading water, just to reassure myself that I know how.
Holy f$ck! When did it get so freakin' hot? Dayum! I ran the exact same route Tuesday morning that I just finished. My splits then:
Yeah, I was rocking the 'hood that day. Of course, it was about 69 degrees out with a little bit of a breeze.
Tonight, same route, these are the splits:
WTF?? I had to slow down (but not walk, small victory) in that last lap since I was working so hard. Bleagh. Of course, it's 10:00 pm and still 87 degrees, but feels like hotter. Humidity is 66 percent. Argh. This is the hottest it's been so far this year, and I guess we should call ourselves lucky. With all the rain we've had it's been cooler than usual, and with all the time I've been spending in the water or in the gym, or in Colorado, I've not become acclimated at all. Sheesh.
And, you like how i"m not saying that this wouldn't have happened if I'd drag my a$$ out of bed in the morning? Yeah, that too. G'night -- I hear a very cold shower calling my name.
