Y'all, it is HOT!!!
I ran yesterday morning first thing before we headed off for a day at the waterpark with the boys. I knew I'd be feeling super anxious about my training if I didn't get a run in yesterday, but I was definitely lacking motivation to get out in that humidity. I was oh-so-proud of myself for sucking it up and doing it, though!
Slowed my pace a bit and took a couple walk breaks in an effort to be smart about it and all. Next time I'm definitely bringing my water, even if I'm just doing a shorter run. Poor hounds are going to have to stay home more with the heat - they just get too hot and dehydrated and I feel guilty for bringing them, even though they make such a fuss if I consider lacing up the running shoes and leaving them behind. Whiners.
We had an awesome time at the waterpark, it was a perfect day for it!! Bear and I were actually on the news - Suri Crow saw him in a little baby swing splashing around in the water and having a ball and fell in love with him (I mean, really, how can you NOT) and wanted to put him on TV.
So we were on the 6:00 news last night in a story about the heatwave - we're all famous and stuff!
My goal for the next couple of days (yay, weekend!!) is a short run tomorrow morning and then my long run Sunday at the crack of dawn. I think tomorrow I'll probably take the double BOB and the faithful running dogs with me so hubby can sleep in a little. He's out hootin' and hollerin' tonight :)
I need to work on being better at hauling myself out of bed early enough to beat the heat (at least a little) and get my run in first thing. Lately I kind of stink at that. I need to get tough and let Bear work it out for himself and get back to sleep in the middle of the night, but I guess I'm so used to stumbling into his room, feeding him, and rocking him back to sleep that I'm there before I even realize! That and I'm a super softie...
Well, speaking of sleep, since I can, I'm going to take myself to bed now so I can get up for my run :) Maybe if you sweet talk me you'll luck out tomorrow and get another sweaty post-run pic!!
