A Little Short

Thursday, May 16, 2013

I had planned to go 20 plus miles this morning as my final long run before the marathon on June 8th. Though i carry water with me, the heat got the better of me and i hit the wall at about 17. I was able to push to 19 miles, but my body wouldn't let me go any further. So i will only have one 20 plus miler in before the race.

It seems that Spring has been missed again here in mid-Mo with temps near 90 again today. Hope you have a great Thursday.

    So sorry you had such high heat already. I was fortunate to get up & run at 6am, and it was only 55 degrees out. Actually a might bit chilly when I started, but felt great after I warmed up.

    My hubby loves to run in the heat. He'll go out on purpose in the afternoons when it's in the 80's and 90's. I can't do that. I don't think I sweat enough, so I can't cool down, and I'll end up getting terribly nauseous and overheated.

    You are going to do AWESOME on your marathon!

    We have a few days of spring between the snows and the tornadoes, and then the steamy hot weather. Sigh. Best to you with your running.
