Pretty good over here! Right now I am just unwinding after a long day, so I am going to try and keep this post short. I am beat… 11 hours of work will do that to you! Especially when half of it is out in the heat! The heat index today was around 105 degrees and I was seriously roasting outside while I was working at the outdoor pool. Note to self: Do not pick up outdoor pool shifts.
The good news is that I am feeling pretty much like my own self today. I felt much better when I woke up this morning, but I still took it a little easier on my run today. I’m going to go easy again tomorrow and try to ramp things up a little bit on Wednesday.
Distance: 9.11 miles
Average Pace: 8:07 per mile
I felt really strong today! But…
Holy Moses it is hot out! I can’t escape this heat no matter what time I run… It really sucks! I left at around 6 AM today and it was already roasting outside. Too bad this is only the beginning of summer
I’ve actually started bringing my handheld water bottle with me on my morning runs because it has been so hot and I start to feel quite dehydrated once I hit the one hour mark. Once I start getting that dehydrated feeling, everything goes down the drain! That little extra fluid really helps me get through the end run without feeling like death. Haha.
At least I came home to this bowl of beauty
Heaven in a jar…
Banana oatmeal with cinnamon, strawberries, and chocolate almond butter . Sadly, that was the last of my jar I guess I will just have to order more…
I think oatmeal with some kind of nut butter is my favorite breakfast of all time. It is definitely up there with pancakes, so that is really saying something.
