When my alarm went off I laid in bed for a few minutes, before getting up. I thought about how this moment is where I make a choice. I was tired and a little sore, but now was the moment to make the choice. Off I went to let the dogs out, put on my running clothes and of course munch a Shot Blok. It's already 70 degrees, but the humidity is approaching 90% so I knew I would have to take it slow. Of course being my competitive, hardly satisfied self I decided to push myself running and take extra walk breaks. Of course it averaged out, but going a little faster also helps my form and posture.
I cut back sooner than I planned because I was getting too warm, which put me at 42 minutes and 42 seconds for my total time. I got in 3 miles exactly, which left me with a 14:14 pace. I'll take that given the weather this morning!
Now that it's hot again, I need to take a quick shower before I go out to run. I find a shower resets my temperature and helps to keep me cooler. Does anyone else experience that or I am completely weird?
