No more messing around. Training time HAS to start. Except the sun doesn’t want me to.
I tried, you guys. I did. The plan said six miles on Sunday. Since I couldn’t do it Sunday I did it Saturday. Or tried!
I even started early! By 8am the sun was unrelenting. Thermometer said 82, but humidity was HIGH. I took water and I NEVER take water on six miles. My running intervals seemed to ALL start with a big hill, but that was expected. Then somewhere in the beginning of mile 2 my body said “nah.” I had to give up. I was a little over a half mile from home and just walked back. Except my body didn’t even want to do that. I very nearly had to call a a car share for a short distance.
When I got home my hat was nearly clear. See picture above–this was after I cooled down a little, but you can see my hair through the hat on the left side of the image.
I’ve decided to run inside for the time being. I haven’t gotten much mileage, but at least I’m doing something.
It also took me several runs to realize that my playlist wasn’t on shuffle, which explains why I was hearing the same few songs every time. I can’t believe it wasn’t immediately obvious. But it’s cool, I fixed it.
