…you must go away. Now. Right now.
Seriously!! Nothing ruins a beautiful 77degree day like 96% humidity!!! UGH!
Despite the disgusting weather, I headed out last night for a short run. It was a two-a-day for me as I had gone to spin class yesterday morning. I like two-a-days because they usually serve to free up an extra rest day which is exactly what I need this week. As for the run…it was okay. I at least waited until the sun went down but it was still gross at 7pm and I was a mess by the end of only a few short miles. I was thankful that it was a short run because of the heat but also because my hamstring was still bothering me from Sunday. After my run I took a nice cold shower and iced my hamstring while watching the Phillies until I fell asleep. I hate when the Phillies play out west because I can never stay awake for the whole game!
Not much else to say about training…I am taking tonight and tomorrow off and then running/swimming Friday. As mentioned previously, I have a race Sunday so I will also be using Saturday as a rest day. The race is a Sprint Tri at Belmar beach. It is an ocean swim which has me a little nervous. I have only been in the ocean a handful of times in the last 10 years and when I do go in it is usually only up to my knees. On the rare occasions that I go out further I usually get freaked out and come back in on the beach. So while I am a good swimmer and I usually depend on it for my races as a head start on the competition, I am really concerned that in this race it will be what holds me back. Which is of course the whole reason I chose this race in the first place- I like to challenge myself. I figure, it’s only 400meters…I can do anything for 400meters….right???
I have so many wonderful plans for the next five days that work is going at the pace of a snail….soooooo slowwwwww………I can’t believe it is only lunch time!!! Here’s hoping the afternoon goes faster than this morning did and that we get a little break in the heat/humidity.
I haven’t posted any pictures lately so I’ll leave you with a photo of my favorite phillies ❤
