I've said it before but...
Summer running is the worst!
I'm a cool weather runner. Give me 40-50 degree weather and I am a happy camper. Any warmer than that and I am toast...
Yes...the 70's, 80's, and 90's are much too hot for me #Wimp
These last few months I have been in somewhat of a running slump and I am trying my hardest to get back into a routine. I don't have any races in the near future...just the Go Girl Half in September...but I am desperately working to get back to a place where I can enjoy my 4-6 miles runs without feeling like I am sucking major wind at the end.
Hot, humid, Kansas summers are quite possibly the worst time to pull myself out of a running slump...but here I am
Running in the summer has to happen before 7AM; and with summer school right now it really is my only option since I have to leave my house by 7:30AM.
This morning I was up and out the house by 6AM...but I did not manage to #BeatTheHeatOrHumidity
4 1/2 miles had me wondering whether I went running or swimming...
The only thing that made this mornings workout a little better was the return of #TrackTuesday
Call me crazy...but I love, love, love running at the track. First of all...we live about 1.5 miles from the track, which is the perfect distance for a little warm-up
and second...speed work is about 1000 times easier on the track. Something about being able to visualize the finishing line makes it easier to keep pushing through those painful intervals ;)
Today's track workout was 4x200M repeats; I am starting back slow and steady...maybe I will work back up to 400M and 800Ms #Maybe
My 200's felt pretty good today, although I didn't time them, but by the time I got home I was definitely still huffing and puffing...and even after my shower I was still sweating #Awesome
Have I told you how much I hate summer running and the humidity?
