Let's just assume that it's ridiculously hot in the gym unless I specify otherwise.
I had been pretty tired all day - I had a full weekend of running, camping, fishing, etc. Sometimes the only "goal" I have when I run is to finish. Today was one of those days. I hadn't run on Sunday and I'm happy to report that my heel was feeling fine by the time that I started out. Same program I've done the last few weeks:
I had been pacing at 5.5 mph, but I was feeling pretty good even at the end so I sprinted it out and tried to hit 6 miles. Sigh... not quite fast enough:
In the past few weeks I've normally added another 15 minutes or so of jogging, but my niece had an accident at daycare (first time in weeks) so I got to cut it short a bit.
In other fitness related news... I got my new racing skirt!!! Luckily the color I was looking for (SnowBelle Yellow) was on clearance (what luck!) so it wasn't that expensive. I'm going to wait to post pics until I run in the full gear, which will either be August (if I do the Georgetown to Idaho Springs half marathon) or September (Kaua'i half marathon). I had already purchased one of the skirts from Team Sparkle, but I think I'll save that skirt for smaller local races because there aren't any pockets, I'm not 100% confident in the waistband for distance running, and well, I'm not sure how well it will travel.
