In case you missed it, yesterday was National Running Day!
In honor of the holiday, I ran an extremely hot, extremely sweaty 4 miler in the morning. Except I should have run it earlier in the morning because I spent the rest of the day feeling a little crappy. Yay for dehydration headaches!
Temps here in El Paso are already in the triple digits. I think the high yesterday was 108*F. That’s pretty warm… I’m usually not one to complain about the heat (because I complain about the cold) but damn, it got hot really fast! Seems like just last week I could still run in the mid-morning and not feel like I was going to die.
My plan (tentative plan, mind you) was to get up early enough to start running around 8. Well… I fell asleep on the couch Tuesday night because Matt was out in the field doing Army stuff and I was watching Friends on Nick at Nite (don’t judge me). So I overslept a little and I woke up at 8:15. I didn’t make it out to run until almost 9:30 am and I’m pretty sure it was already 95* out. In hindsight, I probably should have dragged my butt to the gym, but I’m not always that smart. Also, treadmills suck.
My training plan was supposed to be mile repeats, but no. That certainly wasn’t going to happen. I’m just happy I ran all 4 miles (however ugly the last one might have been).
All in all, it was a good day way to celebrate National Running Day! I hear today is National Donut Day… I should probably celebrate that one too. 😉
