So week three Dopey Challenge training is in the books! And people who run around here really lucked out cause the weather dropped for a couple days. Instead of being 85% humidity combined with the extreme Texas heat, we had a stretch of 60 degree temps in the mornings!!! It was still humid, but man did it feel great to be out there in cooler temps. I felt like a whole new runner!
The weekday runs and workouts were still hot, but I got through them no problemo. In fact, I ran one of my evening runs at near my 5k pace of 7:00 min miles – cooler temps + being around some fast runners were the reasons me thinks. The weekend came though and I was glad for the cooler temps. My schedule called for a short 3 miles on Saturday and 11 miles on Sunday. 3 sounded silly, so I did 4, then went to an hour of yoga. Afterwards a group of old friends got together for a mini reunion of sorts, where I did enjoy their company and also a few Guinnesseseses.
I’m glad to report that the health benefits claims of Guinness must be true, because I woke up early for my 11 miler and handled it pretty well. Like I said, the cooler temps helped too!
Anyway, that’s all I got right now. More than enjoying this rest day and get back at it tomorrow!
Peace out internet!
