I was still feeling run down this week. In fact, more so than last week. Not actively sick, mind you, but like I could go over my tipping point if I don’t take it easy. So I did. I even skipped a run. And missed some speed work. And abandoned Pahla B for the week. And you know I hate missing workouts!

Unfortunately I was feeling run down the beginning of the week again. RHR shot way up. Only this time, it was still up on Tuesday. It had come down to fairly normal today, but I didn’t get out there until almost 9 am. Which is far too late on a hot and humid day.
Still, I was surprised that the run ended up being on the upper end of my pace range for easy runs — and actually felt somewhat easy, until mile 3, when the sun and humidity had sucked the life out of me and I just wanted it to be over!
I guess I just need to rename Thursday to Treadmill Thursday. Any day with a “feels like 90” — or really 90, for that fact — has me hunkering down inside. Although Thursday was actually a nice-ish day, I just can’t get my run on until the afternoon.
The good news is the predicted thunderstorms never appeared. The bad news is the predicted thunderstorms never appeared. Seriously, of course I didn’t want a thunderstorm, but on a super humid day . . . a little rain would’ve been nice (not the torrential rain we had later in the day).
A solo run in the group. This would have been a great run if it hadn’t been so darn humid!
Favorites of the week
I converted another sole sister and she loves her Happy Girl skirt! You can use code save 20% on most Skirtsports with the code FWC20 — and new skirts and prints are rolling in, too.
The storm yesterday blew in great weathe for a hike, but I knew it was not in my best interest. However, the dogs still need to be walked, and I needed a few things at the close by pet store, so we took them to the park for a nice walk and a little doggy socialization.
Lola was not quite that well behaved around the cows — she was lunging and dancing and growling for all she was worth. She’s always been that way around cows. I imagine she’s thinking “dinner! I can take them!”.
And that’s a wrap
Let’s get the conversation started:
Do your furkids react to certain other animals?
If you run in a skirt, what’s your favorite thing about it?
What has been your most fun “activity” this summer so far?
