Kind of like this?
I went out Saturday for a 16-mile run. I should have started earlier, I know, but waking up before 6 AM on a Saturday almost feels wrong. When I went out around 9:30, it felt cool; I honestly didn't think it would be that bad. Plus, I was actually prepared with a hat, sunscreen, water, and gels.
You know where this is going...
By the time I hit Mile 7, it was actually too dangerous to attempt to run another nine miles so I decided to head home, with 10 miles logged for the day. It was a smart move, but I'm really starting to worry about the rest of my training. I need to suck it up and start waking up at 5 AM and pray that September is much cooler.
This week, I'm going to try to get in as much running as I can before Thursday -- fun times are ahead!
Monday: 3.5 miles (easy)
Tuesday: 5 miles (easy)
Wednesday: Speed Workout, 45 minutes
Thursday: 6 miles (easy)
Saturday: Optional early morning AM run
