Gotta love a long weekend. I was happy to schedule an extra morning run when I’d usually be working!
This morning I met up with a couple friends downtown for a casual run. We started later than usual, meeting at 9 a.m., since one of our friends suggested the time. And then she didn’t even run! I think she was worried that everybody would be faster … but I would have loved to slow it down today. It was hot out there!
I dragged behind my other two friends the entire run. After four miles when one of them had to move on, M and I decided to power through for a couple more miles. We took a short walk break before starting up again, but the momentum was gone. There were a lot more walk breaks in our final 2.5 miles!
Part way through the run, I figured out why I was struggling. Sure, the heat was a factor. And yeah, I did go to a boot camp workout on Saturday.
But yesterday I joined my husband for a 15.3-mile bike ride. It was only my second ride of the year. Yeah, I bet my legs were a little tired after that!
I’m ready to start swimming again, too. I’m going to try to hit the pool this week. Less than three months to Iron Girl!
