Ran 12 & 8
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment on my last post - so thoughtful of each of you.
I ran 8 miles today. It was too hot and humid for me - 80*, like yesterday. I stopped often at fountains, pouring water on my neck and arms. I had to sit down twice, but not for long - the mosquitoes found me. My left shin hurt a little. I'll ice it.
Yesterday's 12 miler was easier somehow. I ran it without taking walking breaks like today. Maybe drinking from the cold refrigerated water fountain like I did yesterday instead of the lukewarm ones I used today and the GU at mile 4 made the difference.
As usual, I was soaked in sweat today. While we were in California last week, I hardly sweat even though it was 80*. The CA weatherman said that it was humid, but I couldn't feel it and I was able to run faster, getting down to half marathon pace. It was a good running change to see some faster splits on my Garmin.
