Heat and Humidity Suck, 26.2=???
Wednesday: 4 miles @ 9:41 pace outside
Thursday: Body Pump
I’ve been running with a girlfriend in her neighborhood on Wednesday mornings and it has been a nice change of pace… literally. I never thought I’d see the day when I was content running in the high nines. I had a great time chatting the whole way and didn’t even notice how “slow” we were going. It’s a great little partnership because she keeps me from speeding up and I hold her accountable to run. Win Win.
I remember this time last year I was gearing up to train for Space Coast. I was knocking out workouts like no ones business. While my paces and distances may be different, my hydration strategy isn’t. July is by far the worst, and by worst I mean gross, month of the year here in Florida.
And to think, this morning (Thurs) the low was 79. Guess I picked the right morning to tun outside 🙂 These numbers can only mean one thing. Nuun. Nuun. Nuun. I’ve got to replace the electrolytes and sodium lost while running. It’s so important for recovery and actually makes you feel a lot better in general. A lack of hydration can lead to headaches or even worse, over eating 😉 haha. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. Just saying.
