Heat Wave

May 24th, 2010

Holy moly, it has been warm out in South East WI and the forecast looks like that is going to continue this week. We are looking forward to a lovely high of 90*F today. Fantastic! So, my running has been going well, but I’ve been just sweating like crazy out there. It’s disgusting .

On Saturday I had a lovely group run through the local wildlife area, which was lots of fun. I ended up doing 6.5 miles that day. On Sunday (yesterday), I had planned on doing a long run of 10 miles, but the heat just got to me absolutely and I didn’t have anything so I ended up cutting it down to 5 miles, which was a little bit disappointing. But I was just dieing and had to take serious walk breaks so I didn’t think it was worth it try to finish. It probably didn’t help that I wasn’t carrying anything to drink.

This morning I had a nice 3 miles run aside from the heat. I am going to have to start getting up much earlier to run in the summer I think. Although we are at a disadvantage here because the sun comes up around 5am. It’s weird to wake up at 5:20am and just have sun blaring in through the window. Hopefully tonight will be cooler when I do my second run of the day. Probably just a quick 2 miles – I kind of like the super short fast runs, they are over so quickly!

    yup, I’m up in Appleton, and I hate hot weather running as well. It’s looking to be in the ’70’s this weekend though!
