Bad news for me: I have pink eye! Because of that I wasn't able to go swimming yesterday. Instead I ran twice outside yesterday. Let me tell you that I can't wait to get done with this heat!
3.63 miles - 32:51 ran most of this, except for about a quarter of mile
2.65 miles - 35:36 run/walk with my half marathon classmates, SO fun :)
Running at two different times of the day made me realize that as an outdoor runner, I have two choices when it comes to suffering. So, this brings me to my first question of this blog post. Do you prefer to run when its a cooler temperature with higher humidity or a warmer temperature with lower humidity?
I missed swimming yesterday so I decided to go this morning. However I decided to just kick with a kick board to keep my eye out of the water. Because this is REALLY boring I only did 30 minutes, but after swimming I got out and ran 2.53 miles in 21:41. I really struggled this morning, the humidity seems impossible to handle. However, one more run marked off the schedule, now I can look forward to my 7 mile run on Saturday.
Speaking of my 7 mile run on Saturday, I will be out of town so I get to run with some new scenery. I mapped out a route online using google maps and sent it to my hubby so he knows where to look for me if I don't return. I am hopeful that I can manage to stay on track diet wise while we are down visiting family! Which brings me to my second set of questions for today:
- How do you manage running when you are in an area you are unfamiliar with? Will you run alone? Run on a treadmill?
- Any helpful tips on how to stay on track with a diet when you are traveling and/or staying with family?
Sorry nothing more interesting today, I will harder to be exciting next time! :D
