I woke up at around 7:45 today and rolled over. My wife looked at me and asked “Are you running today?”.
“Yeah”, I replied, “I should probably go now”.
“Whatever” she said sleepily.
“Before it gets too hot,” I clarified.
I finally convinced myself to get out of bed at around 8:15 and I was out the door at about 8:45. It was indeed hot and humid, so I just slowly pushed my way through the run. It was long and slow, but I guess that was really the point of this workout so it’s all good. I took my two planned walk/water breaks, and made it the full 9 miles, but it wasn’t very pleasant.
