Last weekend I almost ran 7 miles, which was broken up with a lot of walking. This is the story. I was going to meet my friends at the beach front to run 6m with them. I live three from the beach and left waaaay to late, so I booked it. I did 7minute miles. 3 of them. Terrible idea. Remember the fact that I’m a slow runner? SO combined with the summer heat?
This summer heat: GREAT for tanning, HORRIBLE for running.
I’m considering giving up running for the summer (after our half marathon in May)… But right now I’m just trying to balance my school, work and running. I need to change up my routine to run during the cooler moments of the day, which might call for my beloved 3 mile morning runs (I would do more, but there is something inherently wrong with getting up before 5:30 am for a run).
The glorious news is that I am 81% of reaching my goal of running 50mi during the month of April! Woot! This will be a glorious feat for me, as I’ve been trying all year to achieve this goal (which is a whole 3 months…)
I ran another 2 (measly but great feeling) miles tonight, and I feel amazing. All the hard work is paying off, and thankfully my husband isn’t coming home to fat wife. I ran off all the calories from the hot chocolate and marshmallows AND whip cream I drank last night as I plunged into depression because my husband was gone a whooooole week. But he’s coming home tonight and I had to run my hot chocolate off before he can back !
My biggest weakness is chocolate and hot chocolate… what’s your foodie weakness?
