Did 3.4 miles of speed intervals on the treadmill yesterday evening. It was too darned hot to go outside! I'm mostly doing evening runs due to schedules. Feels good to pound off the stress of a long Monday.

Since I am focusing on my first Tri I SHOULD be running. But I am really focused onthe swim (cuz I don't swim). But I plan on a marathon in Feb. My 16 week plan that starts in Nov. is pretty agressive...I should be up to 20 miles per week by then. I am currently up to 3 miles per week. HA!

But I did run last night. 90+ temp in the evening. Another very slow 3 miler. I wear my garmin just to keep an eye on my pace. Keeping between 11:30 and 12 min. mile. VERY slow and easy. Sure is hot as hades for running.

I hope to report on am AM run tomorrow. I am trying hard to get back up to 10 miles per week.

Boy it is HOT!

Ran yesterday, 3 miles before noon. Still hot, but okay.

What a difference the weather makes... Monday, it was perfect: 60 degrees, low humidity, just a hint of breeze, and I ran my 3.5 mile route at my fastest ever. Today, 70 degrees, very humid, windy and I was much slower.

And I had a bit of a revelation while I was out running-- it's always my right leg that gets stiff and achy, and it occured to me that maybe that leg is shorter. My left hand is a lot bigger than my right, and it's the same with my feet. So I tried to measure my legs when I got home, and yup, my right leg is definitely shorter. Oh well.

I went for about a 2-hour run/walk/goof around on the trails today (more walking and goofing around than running). It is HOT!!

Ran 3.8 yesterday afternoon. Wasn't the most comfortable run, but parts of it were fun. I'm having difficulties with my new shoes a little bit, can't seem to get the yankz to fit the same way they did in my old pair. Will give it another shot tomorrow during my group run in the morning & see if some tweaking will take care of it.

I did my first real trail run today on a 1 mile singletrack (did two rounds) that was rocky, hilly, rutty, wet, earthy, buggy, spiderwebby, and a heck of a lot of fun! I love my trail shoes - they really stick! It all felt very primeval and sweaty (well, the 85 degree 90 pct humidity probably helped with that.) I totally have to do more runs on the trail. So much fun!

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill Monday night. Running outside in 102 degree heat at 6:00 PM is just too much for me.
