Oh boy, I just can’t believe how HOT it was today, 80°F at 10:30 am! People say you’ll get used to the heat after a while, but I’m still waiting for that to happen.
Today we slightly adjusted our usual Lunch Break running route to add a loop around a small nearby lake. Originally I had planned to run a little longer, but after three miles I started to feel dizzy, so I decided to walk the rest.
- Distance: 3.1 miles (5 km)
- Time: 35:00 minutes
- Average pace: 11:17 min/mile
- Feeling: Dizzy
Honestly, I’m starting to worry about my upcoming 6 mile race. At the moment I can barely run three miles until I feel like passing out. Plus, the race will start at 11 am, which means that we will run right through the midday heat! Ok, let’s just wait and see. Maybe I will get used to the heat by the end of July.
By the way, my trainer appointment did happen yesterday! In short, it was fabulous! I’m going to write a separate post about my brand new strength training routine.
