summer running sucks
I have not run in a week because I hate the heat and running. That and I lost electricity on Friday night from the crazy storm that hit VA. My electricity wasn't back until Saturday night. I know what does that have to do with running? I couldn't bring myself to die running in the heat to have to come into a warm house. Then my air was broken when the electricity came back. That is now all fixed so I went for a brief run this morning.
I woke up after the first night sleeping in my bed since Thursday. Ah it was so nice to not have to sleep downstairs on a couch b/c that is the coolest place to sleep. So after a very restful nights sleep, I got up and got dressed. It was a beautiful night the previous night so I'm sure that it would be a fabulous morning for running. Turns out that I was slightly off. I waited too long to run. 8 am during the summer feels like noon running. I guess when the humidity is hovering around 50%. I thought I my face was going to catch on fire for the heat that was coming off of my body. I guess I need to start to turn on the alarm clock and get up super early. It doesn't help that we are having a heat wave, but really that is not that new for July.
Looks like I will be running tonight at run club. Then I have a 4th of July 5K to run tomorrow. Sooner or later I guess I may actually get used to running in hell.
