My run/workout yesterday left me completely fried. The heat really sucked the energy out of me. Plus at the time I didn't have enough hydration & fuel to keep me topped off. I did ok with my bottles of water, but I needed more. Once I came home, I dipped in the pool and properly fueled my body to replace all that I took out. After I showered, instead of getting dressed I changed back into my jammies and lounged around all day. I even took a good solid nap. I was exhausted.
It was a rare day with nothing on my agenda. Nothing is just about all I did. I did kick into gear late in the afternoon to cook supper, clean house & the such that I usually do in the day. When I woke up this a.m. I had my usual battle of wanting to get my run done early vs. going back for a few more zzzz's and getting it done this afternoon. The thought of the blasted heat got me going & out the door sooner rather than later. I could still feel the effects from yesterday so I kept it simple and slow and easy. 2 miles to cover a few streets still left in my neighborhood.
Here are the few tunes I listened to while I ran:
Cartoon Song - Chris Rice
Angel (Metro Mix) - Lionel Richie
Pink Cadillac - Natalie Cole
The Way I Was Made - Chris Tomlin
I know I need to get used to the hot temps, this is key to training for Howl at the Moon in August. It's a tough thing to balance. I hope that by taking it easy today I can get back on track for a good week and a good solid 5k race on Saturday.
