Holy hot weather people!
Last week we were melting here in the northeast and trying to run when there were multiple heat advisories was not easy. I spent more time on the treadmill than I like, but at least I was able to get my miles for the week above 20 again.
Monday - I've been reading about how it should only take about two weeks to acclimate to the weather changes, but I cannot deal with deer flies this summer. Instead I ran 5 miles on the treadmill.
Wednesday - My morning was spent at a dental appointment, so I convinced mr. C to do a 5 mile evening run with me. He came home with a surprise pack of deer fly tape to make my run easier. Even though there were hundreds of those little suckers flying all around, I only caught ONE! I didn't get bit though.
Friday - Between playing chauffeur and running errands, my chance to do a morning run to beat the heat disappeared. Once again I found myself running 5 miles on the treadmill. I'm thankful that we have the treadmill, but I'm still struggling with my speed (why do I run faster outside?) and how to make these runs more fun.
Sunday - It was mr. C's birthday and I thought the perfect gift would be a race entry! We ran the Hula Hustle 10K and then cooled off in the pool at the post race luau.
Do you like to run races in the summer?
