Called for some hill training; 9 400M hill repeats; but I don't have hills near and Im limited in time so I did intervals on some relatively flat roads instead.
I was seriously not going to run this morning. Im terrible at staying on a program; I never do. I try, I intend...
I was so not going to run this morning, it's hot, it's VERY humid, it's extremely nasty out there. Like a swimming pool. I am tired and had an upset stomach from a spicy and very full dinner last night; in fact I am up about 3 pounds from Yesterday! Thanks, Spaghetti!
So I got up and made breakfast and coffee and started to get dressed, and turned on the weather network to have a look at where Earl has gotten to this morning, and I thought it's crappy out there (sunny.....omg when did sunny become crappy? When it was 20 C at 630 am I suppose.) And I took off my running clothes and I sat back on the bed with my coffee.
This went on for about 6 minutes. I drank the coffee and considered the weekend and the HURRICANE and thought about my long run. Saturday the Hurricane should be making landfall around 9 am (at the moment) and therefore, I should have a few hours of decent and cooler weather. SO If I do my long run on Saturday I might get it in. IF I wait until Sunday, I might not get it in or I might end up running in wind UGH and I hate wind. SO I might go on Saturday. But therefore I need to be on schedule. SO I put my running clothes back on, and I went right straight out the door.
It was super muggy but not toooooo hot and there was a lot of shade. I didn't find it too bad, except that I was dripping a huge amount. I didnt have time to do hills = slow. I didnt have time to do a 3 km warm up or cool out. But I warmed and cooled a km, and did 9 400 M repeats with 200 m slow job between, and a couple of walks so I could be a little faster. I did come in with 7.2 km in about 46:50 ish (cannot remember) and felt pretty cocky about it LOLOL
YAY me for getting out there this morning!
