Training for 6/12/15

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 12:55 pm

I’ve had a bit of a tough time getting used to East Coast time again, but what else is new? Wednesday, I just did some strength training in the evening, and yesterday, by the time I got around to thinking about running, it was so effing hot I just forgot about it.

Today, I was able to get my butt out the door relatively early for a lap around the 4.5-mile loop, but it was already pretty damn hot again. It was a miserable “run.” I have to put that in quotes because I walked a whooooole lot of it. I just kept getting so hot, and out of breath, and my legs felt like lead even though I’ve only run one measly 3-miler this week! Just awful.

But, it was done. Pepper looked mad at me for leaving him home when I got back, but he really should’ve been thanking me. He’d probably still be panting and puking up entire stomachfuls of water.

Anyway… tomorrow, I have the second 5K of the summer series, in Rehoboth. This is the one they give the New Balance gift certificates to the top 10 women finishers. I’m really not feeling so great about my chances of getting one of those gift certificates! I’ve hardly been running since the last slow 5K I ran two weeks ago, it’s supposed to be hot as hell again tomorrow, and I still feel like it’s three hours earlier than it actually is when I wake up in the morning, so a 7:30 a.m. 5K is going to hurt. But, I already told TK I would go, and I’m going to Dogfish Head’s brewery for a tasting event after. Maybe it won’t be as terrible as I think it’s going to be. And even if it is, it’ll all be over by 8 a.m.

Sunday, maybe I’ll run again. Depends on how early I can get up and how hot it is, I guess.
