The overcast skies created a facade of cooler temps. It was in the mid 70’s, but I was so warm (always 20 degrees warmer than outside temp when running) I was dripping with perspiration when finished. Not a pretty picture. The category 5 hill that was at the start made for a tougher first mile. That’s always a good training tool though. Hills present the necessary elevation/resistance to improve speed and strength. This area always has a lot of gravel on the shoulder of the road before reaching pavement.
I typically get up early.
This was my alarm clock this morning. It travels everywhere with me. The crack is from the cargo hold of a previous flight. I don’t care. It works and is perfect for me. The crack just gives it character.
I actually woke up earlier but typically it’s around 4 or 4:30. I give myself time for coffee/protein bar and vitamins. Then move over to my computer for posting and email, etc.
Then if I’m training, I try to be dressed and ready to go around 6:30 or so.
My favorite weather to run in is a misty rain and 55 degrees. That is when I run my best.
Tomorrow it’s suppose to be 52 degrees at 7 am!
Can’t wait for that – will be running 3 miles Friday.
That was the temp for this local 5K that I ran at decent speed. Enough to win first in my age division. That gal next to me holding the trophy won best overall. Even though she is 6 months pregnant, she was able to run/walk fast and keep up with me this past Saturday at our local group run. Sharonda is pretty awesome!
