Tomorrow I will run my June race of the month. It seems like it's been ages since I've run a race. And I guess it has been since I ran my May race at the start of May. Thankfully my leg has healed since then so I should be able to run without problems. I know one shouldn't hope for a PR when it's this warm out but you never know, right?
It's supposed to be 74 degrees and sunny and 76% humidity. I imagine it'll be a bit like running in the bathroom right after someone takes a hot shower. At least it's only 3.1 miles. I'm still dreading the 13.1 miles I got myself into in August. Who runs a half marathon in August? Idiots...idiots run 13.1 miles in the middle of summer.
I need to find a July race. I can't believe I am running my SEVENTH race of the year. I have never trained for this long, shoot never stuck with any sort of workout routine this long. At least not since high school and even then I would just train for swim season DURING swim season. There was no off season training for me; I was sixteen, svelte and was in it to hang out with my friends not win Olympic gold.
With tomorrow's projected temps and humidity on the warm side I have been all over my water intake today. Gotta keep hydrated!
I think I'll run with my handheld water bottle tomorrow, too. Better to have it with me than have to worry about where the water stop is. And there is a water stop, believe me I checked.
Enjoy your pre-holiday weekend! Is it already almost July?!?
