Last night was C25K W8D2... but dumb me decided that I was sick of waiting for it to cool down and headed out at 6pm for my run. It was still over 95 degrees outside but I wanted to give it a try. HOLY COW WAS IT HOT!!! I ended up running 1.5 miles and then walking the last 1.5 miles back home. I stopped not because I physically could not run anymore, I stopped because it was too hot outside and I did not want to over do it and get heat stroke. I was sweating so bad that I could not see because it was in my eyes. It was miserable.
So I learned a valuable lesson. I am going to wait until at least 8pm this summer when I run outside so that I make sure the temperature has dropped some from the day's high. This way I can still enjoy the outdoors and do my cardio, but I will not be harming myself.
Today I am going to Zumba and taking my fiancé's sister for the first time. I hope she likes it as much as I am. It is always nice to have more people to share these experiences with!!!
I ate really well yesterday too. Hopefully today will be the same. I have a solid menu planned for the day so we will see how it goes...
