Well, I needed to do a 1:30 run today and normally I take my boys to the Kids' Club at 24hr. fitness and run on the treadmill. BUT, today my husband had the day off, so I had the opportunity to run outside. Woohoo! Because it is supposed to be 97 today, I decided to go right after we dropped our oldest off at Kindergarten, around 9AM. I got dressed and we all walked to my son's school. I got some pretty strange looks from some parents. I have to admit with my Garmin, Visor, Nathan Speed4 waistbelt, and my flashy new shoes I didn't look like ANYONE else there, but whatever!
|Check out my new shoes...the Brooks ST5 racer! They are sooo bright it's crazy! But, I still LOVE them!|
I said goodbye to my boys and husband and headed out in the midst of minivans leaving the school. It IS pretty funny to see so many SUVs and minivans in one place.. ha ha! The weather was already HOT, so I decided to run an out and back route that I knew would be shaded. I have also been taking it easy on my runs b/c of my IT band incident last week and wanted to be close to home in case it flared up again.
Well, I have to say that my run today was HOT, but AWESOME! I didn't have any pain...yay!! Towards the end it was super hot and I was sooo glad to be done! I literally came inside, laid down on the floor, and let the cool AC in my house cool me off! At least it makes good practice for IMAZ.
You know it's hot outside when my face turns the same color as my shirt! Ha ha
I hope you're all having a great week!! :)
