Post-Run Report: June 12, 2017

Yes, I did what I thought I’d never do: took my shirt off after a run in public.

I wasn’t sure how today’s run would go, but I didn’t think it would be so tough. I started with 90 push ups (I could have hit 100, but again, why struggle/push for it? I don’t need/want the arm pain the next day) and immediately set out on my run. Since Brendon is working long hours, I’m back to running alone. I miss having my running buddy with me, but I had to get it done regardless.

The first mile was pretty tough; I set out with a decent 8 minute/mile pace which slowed to 8:38/mile for the second mile and a 9:04/mile pace for the third mile. I ran 3.11 total, ending up with an average of 8:36/mile. I’m happy with that.

What I was not happy with was how hot it was. AND HUMID!!! The sun was darting in and out of the clouds, and when it was behind a cloud, it felt okay. When it peeked out, it was oppressively hot. For this reason, I think I’ve decided to start morning runs beginning Wednesday. I have a baseball game to go to in the evening on Wednesday anyway, so if I want to keep up my schedule, I have to either run tomorrow or Wednesday morning. I think I’m leaning toward Wednesday morning. Besides, it’ll hopefully be a little cooler. I also used to like how I felt during the day after a morning run, so there’s that.
