Today it was back to the grind. Another early wake up call and out for the run. We managed 5 miles this morning, five very very hot miles. This was the first morning that I got hot hot hot. I have enjoyed the sweat and the warmth, but I am officially over it. The first time I got hot we were about halfway through. I had to stop and walk at a very slow pace to cool off. Usually when I take my walk breaks I at least keep a good pace walking, but not on this one, it was a survival walk break. I got hot one more time but I could actually see the finish destination so I was able to fight through and get to a water fountain. It was hot enough today for me to consider carrying a water bottle with me on the next run. And I hate having to tote water around when I am running. The fewer things in my hands and on my mind the better the run, ALWAYS!!!!
I'm still pretty disappointed with my running right now. I am just slow and as much as I don't want to care about my pace it is bothering me. It just seems like I need more and more walk breaks and that my body is not able to do it like I once could. All the way to town to run I tell myself, "Today is going to be better!" and then half a mile in I am ready to walk because something hurts or I'm hot or I cant breathe. I know they are all excuses but its like I just cant talk myself out of it. I may have to go back to intervals until I can get built back up so I don't get too discouraged.
Anyway, the rest of the day I have been working. I didn't have to much business at Job #1 today but was able to get in there and get my stuff done and caught up....then Job #2....let's just talk about job #2 for a minute!!!!! When I came in today after starting my day off hot, I was informed that the AC in the room that I sit in, and only my room, is broken, and it wont be fixed anytime soon. It is well over 80 degrees in here and I am about to die!!!! I just cant get away from the heat today. I have spent my breaks in the bathroom and the back laundry room because they are both air conditioned. And to top it all off I am sweating through my dress shirt. Let's just say I am looking very forward to getting home tonight and cranking the air way down so I can cool off a bit.
The view from my desk. If I could find another fan I would plug it in too and create a fan vortex around me and be soooooo cool!!!!
At this point in the evening I am trying to decide if I am going to workout tonight or just go home and cool down. I don't know how long it is safe to have a core body temp over 120 degrees. Ha ha.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!! Come back tomorrow for a Tips and Tricks Tuesday. I don't know what it is yet so it might be a surprise for all of us.
