Back from a short holiday, and back into it right away.
Had a 9am run yesterday with Cynthia. I know I’ve been saying this a lot lately, but it was HOT yesterday! Like, I was sweating after one lap…ONE LAP!
Regardless, we had to do what needed to be done. The 10K race is at the end of this month (God help me!) and this is our 8K week. So what did we do? We ran 8K and beat our previous PR! Sweet!!
I’m not going to lie to you, though. It was hard. I took frequent water breaks. My legs felt like…I’m not even really sure. Rubber? Heavy weights? Each time I stopped for water, I felt like I was letting Cynthia down, but I had to stop. The heat and humidity really gets to me. That’s the price you pay for living (and running) in the Middle East. 😦
But, like I said, new PR!! So whatevs, humidity…you can suck it!! 🙂
