This weekend I got in a couple extremely sweaty runs. First up I met up Saturday morning with the White Rock Running Co-op. I know several of the members of this group, but it ws the first time I’ve been able to join them for a run. I’m glad I did!
This run they were meeting at a member’s house so we could run his hood. I’ve always loved when I’ve had someone visit our place and I get to take them on a run of my usual routes, so I really liked this concept for a run. The local had routes mapped out from 6-10 miles. I did 8.
There were some speedy folks in this group – it seemed like everyone was wearing Boston Marathon swag. But there were other paces too – even walkers. I ran with a group that said they would do an 8:30 pace – they lied. We did closer to 8:00-8:15. But it’s good to go faster than you maybe wanted to. If you want to get faster, sometimes it’s helps to run faster. Doy.
After the extremely humid run they had a pool party – funzies!
It didn’t cool me down much though. Haha, in fact, the only problem with the experience was that after I went in their house to grab some grub, they had to mop the floor to clean up my sweat (serisouly)! I felt bad, but I wasn’t alone in sweating up the floor (honestly).
Sunday I got in another 4 humid miles. This time I took a cold shower after…it didn’t help. I was still sweating afterwards. But it was OK, because I went to yoga practice where I got even more sweatier…which of course makes you sexier.
It was a really good class, and left me pretty sore. But I was already sore from the runs, so now I’m even sore-ier. It’s good to be sore…lets you know you did some work son!
Anyway, the rest of the weekend included yardwork, housework, toddler time, World Cup, taking off the kiddo’s bike training wheels, and Father’s Day sushi. Not too shabby.
How bout you? Ever take anyone on a running tour of your hood? Find any fun run groups lately? How sexy is that yoga picture?
