Ok, this one is a quicky for sure.
Today was a run FAIL. Despite heading out 'early' at 8:30am, it was majorly hot and humid. I picked a very hilly route that I've been avoiding all summer until I was more ready. 15 miles with crazy elevation changes on roads with no tree cover. Although, it wasn't terrible, I didn't drink until 11 miles in which I found out later was too long. The last 4 miles consist of 3 miles of a crazy uphill, followed by a steep downhill that deadends into the Bay in town. I literally ran right into the water. My pace wasn't great, but OK for a hilly 15. However, my mom picked me up and as we were driving back home my stomach started KILLING me. As in, I couldn't even sit up straight. Total buzz kill. It didn't get better for hours after until I finally forced myself to drink. As it turned out, that helped tons, so I think that it was major dehydration. Ohh summer. I do love you still, no worries.
So because of that, and because my mom and I had to postpone our trip into the city because of my stomach, I didn't get in my 6 recovery miles tonite. I'll have to do them tomorrow along with my recovery miles, but that's ok. Flexibility is a good thing. Speaking of which, I should probably go stretch for the first time in about oh, 2 months...
My mom and I got some good shopping in. I got some skirts for work (I have to wear a skirt everyday where I work, and it is really hard to find work-appropriate skirts that fit my insanely long legs). Plus, some other randomness that I needed. Good times.
Ok, I'm out for reals now! C-ya!
