I did start off this week’s plan with a good run. Last night when I got off work, I hung around the house for a little while in hopes that it would cool off a little when the sun started to set.
It kind of worked. There was a little bit of a breeze when I went out, but the sun was still glaring down hard. The weather man says the humidity was low, but I couldn’t get a deep breath to save my life. I had to stop a few times so that I could get a good deep breath. That is just annoying.
way to fast in the first mile, and then everything after that was just all over the place. No knee pain, so that’s always a good thing. My quads were super tight during the last mile.
My chest hurt for the last 1/2mile. I think my HR was way to high during that run. I considered wearing my HRM, but I don’t like that thing so I didn’t. I think I’ll wear it on a few runs this week to see how it goes. ……and because I’m a real moron, I didn’t drink any water all day yesterday. I don’t even know how that is possible, but I didn’t.
Once I hit 4 miles I did 1/4mi walk around the block to lower my heart rate. When I got home I stretched for a few minutes before going upstairs and falling on the couch. I had a banana smoothie and called it dinner.
Let’s hope today’s 5mile run is a little more stable.
