Ahh, we’re already in July, I pretty sure yesterday was June 1st, no?
How are the east-coasters handling the latest heat wave? Yesterday, I thought with an early start I would be able to squeeze in an outdoor run, but after walking into the thick humidity to take out Mei, I decided that a treadmill run was in order. So after a nice stretch from core fusion I headed straight to the gym and ran a lovely 5 miles under a 9 minute pace. I’m pretty sure that never would have happened if I was outside! Even in the gym I could feel the heat and humidity, but honestly I find that easier than the cold. Although I stopped after 5 miles, I could have banged out another 2 miles, but didn’t want to push the knee once again. For now I’ll keep my longest runs to 5 maybe 6 miles and get my pace closer to 8:30. I’ll save 7/8/9 mile runs for August.
Now that I’m running longer distances once again I created a new running playlist-something else I’ve missed from my longer runs- mindlessly zoning out or mindlessly listening and following a beat. Plus it made me update my itunes library :).
