Guess I should start back in on these! And you can see how much I’m not doing. How long until Dumbo?
- First half of a barre workout
A whole lot of nothing until….
- A very hot and humid 8 miles that really should be called walking with just a hint of running.
- Warm vinyasa – you know, I think I like warm yoga!
Saturday morning I had to balance sleeping in with getting an early enough start on my run to attempt to beat some of the heat. As I was getting ready I made the horrible discovery that I did not pack my fuel. Boo!!! Fortunately I have been intrigued by Energy Bits and had gotten some to try. And I did pack that! My stomach can be somewhat sensitive but I tried it and it seemed to do the trick! I got outside and realized that I forgot my iPod. Ugh, so back upstairs I went. I know some people can run without music, but I am generally not one of those people, especially when I needed the music to distract me from the heat. Finally I was ready and set off. I was already sweaty and I had barely started. I decided rather than go entirely around the park I would go four miles and then turn around. I lived for the shady parts!! And I found a water fountain. Hallelujah! I also passed by some horses and a playground with a giant turtle. The route actually had a few hills, which was nice as well as not so nice. I ended up walking most of the hills. The new running store was out again with a table offering water and gatorade to passing runners. I was so excited to see them as it had been awhile since the last drinking fountain (I really need to look into some sort of hydration system). I was almost back home when I tripped on the uneven sidewalk but fortunately caught myself before I ended up on the sidewalk. Done!
Let’s see what happens next week!
