But I have to admit, I missed the endorphins. Around 8:30am, I was feeling kinda low and admitted out loud to my mother, I miss running... I feel like a bum. She smirked. It was kinda strange, but in fact true.
Since it has been so hot, Bob decided to run my 5 miler yesterday morning with me instead of running solo in the evening. I have opted out of evening runs this week for 2 reasons:
- It has been TOOOOO hot - at 4:30 am is it 79 degrees and 85% humidity and the sun wasn't even up yet.... at 9pm it is 88 degrees and 85% humidity. I choose early mornings.
- My parents are here helping us build the deck, so I CAN run early. I will miss that when they leave. In order to get a run in after they leave, I will have to start at 3:30 am and that is just INSANE!
Today called for Cross Training and I was thrilled to head to the pool. Kiera's fever finally broke on Thursday (7 days after starting), so we could go swimming today. I wanted to make sure she was still healthy, so we only stayed for 2 hours. I swam 1100 meters over two adult swims. The first one I did 500 m in 15 minutes and the second one I did 600 meters in 15 minutes. The water felt great and I wasn't even breathing hard when I finished. One thing I noted was that I wasn't using my legs much during the freestyle, which is a great arm workout, but I need to work my legs too. So, like running, I will have to use my brain in the pool too.
Got any ideas?
