Seriously, don't I look like a mix between Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, with a little Zoe thrown in for good measure?
Today's run was sponsored by the letter S. S is for SWEAT!
Anyway besides my colorful running attire and the post run sweaty photo thrown in for good measure, I had a good run tonight. I did 4.71 miles on a very familiar route and enjoyed pretty much most of it. There was a part at about the 47 minute mark that was totally in the sun and was a KIL-LER (it was 92* with a heat index of 99* after all - dew point of 71* makes for a sweatfest ). I walked through an interval, but the entire rest of the time I did every interval (used 2 & 2:30 nice and slowly today). Listened to my jamz while I thought about my Chicago strategy and how it will be to do it with someone I've never run before (you'll have to wait for that story until after the half), and what lessons I will have to rely on to not only push myself, but my new racing partner through the race in order for us to be successful (mostly thinking all about fueling, hydrating, and pacing).
Glad I didn't skip this one. Next week is a mini taper (and is for sure my cut back week) - I say BRING.IT.ON!!!!!!
