In an effort to keep me going with my regular blogging, I do have a few topics I want to talk about. However, I’m just not in that focused mindset tonight. Instead, I choose to ramble on about what I’ve been doing lately.
The majority of my free time has been devoted to running or training my puppy (who’s no longer a puppy) and spending time with my senior puppy. It’s been too hot outside to bring any of the dogs along with me during my runs, but I do let them join me for my post-run cool-down walks. They seem content with that. My mileage is beginning to pick up, with my midweek short runs being anywhere from 3-5 miles. It’s getting tough squeezing them in with my already full weekly schedule. So far I am managing. Something’s going to have to give though IF I DO get in to the Laugavegur Ultramarathon for next year!
Today I enjoyed a little over 6 miles on foot with 3 great people! Holy cow, was it humid! It was apparently only about 77 degrees, but the humidity was 88%+ and it didn’t take long for us to get drenched! My hands actually started to get pruny around mile 3.
The rest of my day has been devoted to getting stuff together for round #2 of the Run for the Toilets. Our first attempt was very lackluster, but I blame myself. I didn’t have the time to prepare well, and it was in July. There is SO MUCH going on in July for everyone. If you have kids, you’re likely at the peak of your summer vacation. If you’re a runner (not like me) you likely don’t want to run in 80 degree weather at 8AM with 78% humidity. I am a rarity. I love to run when it’s hot and steamy outside! Granted, I tend to keep my distances short, or I take several breaks.
And this evening I decided to update my blog.
So there you have it. My day on a web page.
Thanks for following along!
