I got back on the track this morning for some lappage. I did 400’s and 200’s. It was fun to go short and fast. Only problems were the clouds of gnats I had to plow through.
It was gross, but luckily I’ve been through this before and I was careful to keep my mouth closed and my eyes shielded with shades…Unlike my buddy Salt who had one burrow into her brain the other day.
Afterwards I was stretching and realized how hawt I must look. So I snapped a pic…
Go back and look at the photo closely – See the black dots on my face and neck – GNATS! They were stuck to my
sweaty glistening skin from head to ankle.
I really don’t get why they hover over sidewalks and tracks. What’s the benefit…For them or me???? I’m sure it will go down in gnat lore as the ‘Great Massacre of 2014’.
Either way, I enjoyed the workout. I’m trying to transition my track sessions to the mornings now due to the heat of day, and since school is out I had it all to myself! Yuppers! Hopefully gnat season will end soon!
How bout you? Do your workouts make you foxy? Ever been part of a gnat massacre? Be honest, that photo is hawt, isn’t it? 😉
I joke that I’m going to get black lung disease from running in the summer because the insides of my lugs will be coated with inhaled gnats by the end of the season. So gross! But they’re better than deer flies.
