The need for speed.
First run in July is in the books! It was speedwork day for me yesterday and it kicked my ass. I ran 25 seconds per mile slower and it was 16 degrees hotter than the last time I did this same loop just two weeks ago! Nuts to that.
We have been having super rainy weather thanks to a depression out in the Atlantic. On Monday night the weather cooled down to a brisk 79* which was nice. I hoped that would stick around for speedwork night, but of course it did not.
Not at all.
I’m reverting back into a turtle, but it’s okay because this fall/winter I am going to break all kinds of PRs. I can feel it!
This is my first summer ever doing speedwork, so it’s bound to happen, right? Right.
Unless you live under a rock, I am sure you know the US played some soccer yesterday. I think my co-worker might have watched the game at his desk… I just have a hunch about that.
I’m not a big soccer fan, but after watching a couple games I was wondering how many miles the players run over the course of the 90+ minutes.
I feel bad complaining about the heat and humidity I’ve been running in because those poor guys look drenched and beat at the end of a game!
Do you / did you have a team in the cup? Have you gotten caught up in the frenzy?
– I’ll be honest and say I’m more into NBA free agency right now, but I had hoped Team USA would have made it through this round.
What is your favorite thing to eat after a hard run? Do you eat immediately after?
– I usually wait a while. I think you’re supposed to have something right after though, so I need to get better about that!
